Student’s Tree-Mapping Featured on Software Blog

The software company supporting the U.S. Forest Service’s online tree mapping software has featured on its blog the work of Amos Almy 2013 on the Ursinus campus tree inventory. The work highlights interesting environmental mapping projects using the company’s software. Inspired by an article on tree mapping in Central Park, New York, Amos wanted to map the trees on Ursinus College’s wooded campus. With the support of Environmental Studies Assistant Professor Patrick Hurley, he turned his idea into an independent research project.
