I interned at the Connecticut College Arboretum which is responsible for 750 acres of land surrounding Connecticut College. This summer, the Arboretum was continuing the tradition of mapping the Mamacoke saltmarsh which is part of the Mamacoke natural area. I was responsible for the GIS digitization of maps that were being created in the field. I also helped to create a web map showing the progress made, and afterwards I worked on creating a story map that the Arboretum would be able to use as an educational tool for saltmarshes for the public.
