Former University of Wisconsin-Madison students Madeline Emde, Danielle Lee, and Chris Long were named the winners of the 2012 North American Cartographic Information Society Student Dynamic Map Competition.
The award winning interactive map — The Wetlands Gem Viewer — was developed in partnership with the Wisconsin Wetland’s Association with the goal of providing an online and engaging spatial catalog of information about critical wetlands areas in the Milwaukee metropolitan area.
The interactive map was completed as a final project for the Geography 575 course under the instruction of Prof. Robert Roth and Richard Donohue. Both a video tutorial and live demo of the award winning interactive map can be viewed on the Geography 575 Spring 2012 course page.
