Notable Achievements in Her Own Words
I will use much of what I learned to work with students seeking Independent studies.
I have two students who have greatly benefited from my experiences in the SPACE program. Both Doug Rivet and Don Lafreniere have been such a pleasure to work with. They presented an illustrated poster at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers, in Las Vegas, in March 2009. The abstract for the poster follows:
Visualizing the Past: An innovative use of historical maps in GIS
The analysis of individual historical maps limits researchers' ability to interpret broader spatial relationships. However, a mosaic of georectified historical maps can remove this limitation. By using this tool, we can better visualize the various factors that have impacted urban form and function. Using Sandwich, Ontario, as a case study, we created a set of mosaics to cartographically represent the impact of changing transportation systems beginning in the late 18th century.
