UDC GIS Students to Map Development of MVT

Thursday February 6, 2014

The University of the District of Columbia’s Mapping the City course introduces students to GIS (geographic information systems) software — software for creating maps of all kinds. Each semester, students apply their newly-learned skills to creating maps for a DC organization. In the spring of 2014, the students, under the guidance of Prof. Amanda Huron, are creating a series of maps for the Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District. The maps will show how the neighborhood has changed in the ten years of MVTCID’s existence — and student visions for the area’s future.
