The power of maps – student research on display

​Students in Nipissing University’s Masters of Environmental Studies/Master of Environmental Science program, and the Department of Geography will be showcasing their poster projects, representing the culmination of a year of original and independent research, in the second-floor R-Wing, at Nipissing University on Wednesday April 8, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.

The event showcases student research projects using visualizing techniques such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth's surface.

Posters range from mapping flood risk to site selection for urban planning, as well as projects focused specifically on northern Ontario such as mapping land-use patterns on traditional Algonquin territory; historical Bank Swallow populations in Canada's boreal forest; spawning sites and historical water levels of Lake Sturgeon in Lake Nipissing; placement of Sea Lamprey traps in Lake Superior; and community gardens in North Bay.

Nipissing University’s MES/MESc program is uniquely interdisciplinary, fully integrating humanities, social science, and natural science approaches to understanding and solving environmental issues. The event is a joint initiative between graduate and undergraduate courses taught by Dr. Krys Chutko, Dr. Kirsten Greer, and Jeff Wilson.​
