Over the 2010-11 academic year, a team of GIS student assistants worked with Prof. DeeAnn Reeder to develop maps and GIS data for use in her teaching and research.
Ted Heitzman, ’12 and Paul Reamey, ’11 developed a series of maps and datasets for Prof. Reeder’s work on white-nose syndrome in bats.
Dan Dougherty, Geography/History ’12 and Mike Grasso, Environmental Studies ’13, worked with with Prof. Reeder and her research assistant Megan Vodzak, Biology ’08, on developing maps for a field guide atlas of mammals in Sudan.
Below is an interview* with Prof. Reeder about those two projects and her future plans for using GIS both in the field and in the classroom.
*One of these days I’ll wear a mic so that you can actually hear my questions.
