This week student interns from Calumet and Houghton High Schools presented their WebGIS to the Village of Calumet Trustees and a full room of community members. Students outlined their work in the Historical Environments Spatial Analytics Lab to create a comprehensive WebGIS that the village can use to manage municipal infrastructure and promote tourism and economic development.
The WebGIS can be found at www.calumetmap.com
The WebGIS is an output of the NSF-funded Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers, "GRACE- GIS Resources and Applications for Career Education” project. GRACE is a collaboration between MTU's Historical Environments Spatial Analytics Lab, Eastern Michigan University's Institute for Geospatial Research and Education, and Michigan Virtual University, to bring GIS technologies to Michigan’s high school educators and intensive community-based internship experiences to high school students.
