Sample GIS Work by Penn State Mont Alto Students

Make a map of public lands in Quincy and Mont Alto. Find out the areas of each land category. Map streams and watersheds.

Find the table of areas here.

Map the forest cover type maps in a section of the Michaux State Forest (Irishtown Road). Merge the types of the same species groups.

Use a Digital Elevation Model to develop contour lines on the Waynesboro Watershed. Make index contours, too. This map is in pdf format.

Develop a viewshed showing what can be seen from a possible firetower location. Go here to see the pdf of the map.
