We are developing a Story Map that will track the neighborhood changes that are occurring surrounding the newly built School of Pharmacy and the relocation of the School of Nursing. Our GIS Facility and Geography Department are working closely with the University President and other key officials, who have bought into the technology. We have Faculty, Staff, Graduate and Undergraduate students involved with various aspects of the project. The neighborhood where the school is being built is currently struggling with crime, vacant properties, and poverty. We believe gentrification will occur in this area and want to track both the good and bad effects of these processes. We will be able to track changes by looking at the same datasets over time.
The Southern Tier Region of New York State was a top award winner in the Upstate Revitalization Initiative competition. We created several maps showing project types and locations. These were included in the final report and in a small way, helped to win the $500 million dollars. Since then, we have worked closely with President Stenger in finding ways to monitor the projects and the economic revitalization that comes with them. Part of the effort is the creation of a easy to use online mapping application to monitor project progress.
Upon request of OCCT, we created an interactive web mapping application that can display all OCCT bus routes and stops. This will enhance students’ abilities to use this bus service.
