This past week City College’s Engineers without Borders student chapter made the return trip from Honduras bearing a nice set of photos and news that the mapping products produced for the project were a success. By tailoring the GIS data available through the good graces of professor Ricardo Alavardo Escobar, Municipal Mayor and Alex Uriel Del Cid, Municipal Technician in Omoa, Honduras, as well as datasets collected by the project team, the project atlas and wall map series stands as a baseline tool for future planning by the town’s water board.

In addition to water resource planning, the mapping materials made the rounds of other decision-making boards in the town, and the large-scale wall maps are currently on display at the local school. As the town continues to expand, up-to-date GIS data is a very significant asset to decipher and plan effectively with and around ‘edge conditions’ such as abutting land use classifications, terrain and elevation, and historical waterways.
