  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/8ce6941d13fe4a679b793f2155573e48
Description:
Great Duck Island (GDI) is a 91-hectare island lying 13 kilometers south of Mount Desert Island in the Gulf of Maine. GDI has a long history of human occupation, and has been farmed, grazed, and lived upon since the early 19th century. Today, approximately 85 hectares of the island are co-owned by TNC and the state of Maine and has been managed as a preserve since 1985. There is a small private inholding on the north end of the island, and the remaining five hectares are owned by the College of the Atlantic (COA). COA manages the Alice Eno Field Station out of the light station on the south end of the island, where students have conducted regular research on the ecology of the island since 1999 (Anderson 2018) [show more]

Multi-Use Paths on Mount Desert Island
  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/54a8f58293244f9c8faa30c362190fb3
Description:
Nynke's project included conversations with community members and leaders, fieldwork to find abandoned paths, designs of multi-use paths, and map-making in GIS. This project flowed out of an earlier class focused on Active Transportation (Bicycle and Pedestrian) in Bar Harbor in the Spring of 2022. However, this project is not supposed to be about me; I am far from a neutral player that collected information to revitalize Active Transportation advocacy on MDI. [show more]

Measles: Understanding Outbreaks
  • https://coagis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=1f0d97ffa80a48f2a9840684b3dbf778
Description:
Measles is an air-born infection caused by a paramyxovirus, mostly common in early childhood. In the present day, measles is considered an extinct disease in most parts of the world. According to WHO, in 1980, before widespread vaccination, measles caused an estimated 2.6 million deaths each year. However, in the recent years, the once eradicated disease started resurfacing in countries like New Zealand, Australia, and United States (CDC). It is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though a safe and cost-effective vaccine is available (WHO). [show more]

River Herring in the Concord River Watershed
  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/a61c71d38b2c4701acdd4f0ef9ecc2f5
Description:
Since long ago, each spring the River Herring swam up the Concord, Sudbury and Assabet Rivers (SUASCO) in unfathomable numbers to spawn. Their numbers turned the sluggish river turbulent with movement, and their masses colored the water black. Nipmuc, Pawtucket, and Massachuset people, their ancestors before them, and later English colonists, treasured these runs for food and fertilizer, and many seasonal communities were once situated at ideal fishing places. The industrial revolution came with largely little heed to the fish or those that used them. [show more]

  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/a08e4636ef6945b0a1a93820bcb334ca
Description:
The Buck Island Sea Turtle Research Program (BISTRP) is a long-term sea turtle monitoring project that focuses on nesting sea turtles in the Caribbean. BISTRP was initiated by the National Park Service in 1988 after Buck Island was identified as an important nesting beach for sea turtles, in particular for the critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. Since 1988, the program has conducted annual monitoring of the nesting sea turtles on Buck Island with the goal of identifying each nesting female, collecting biological data, and tracking nest success on the island.
