Community Mapping Program Newsletter April 2004 New Landscape Change Program Web Page

The Landscape Change Program is a digital archive of Vermont images that documents landscape change over time using historical imagery paired with modern images of the same sites. With more than 1500 images in the archive representing many towns throughout the state, the program continues to work with schools and historical societies to collect Vermont images. If you have any interesting images of Vermont landscapes, submit your image from the program web page and in a few days, it too will be part of the archive. The program also has computers, scanners, GPS units and digital cameras that can be lent for the purpose of acquiring images.

Landscape Change Program Curriculum
The website also contains wonderful curriculum ideas and lesson plans that can be used individually or as a full unit designed to take roughly a month in a high school or middle school classroom.

The Community Mapping Program, a partnership between The Orton Family Foundation and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, supports students, educators, and community groups in a process of local inquiry.Students work with spatial tools, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), to explore their communities and address local needs. Project outcomes may include maps, interpretive guides, databases, displays, and web pages.
Essential support for the Community Mapping Program has also been provided by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the Upper Valley Community Foundation and The Ward M. and Mariam C. Canaday Educational and Charitable Trust.
