Here is my chapter four assignment and also a GIS map that I think is important. It highlights the failing streams in Buncombe County and for the first time since the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972 our waterways are becoming more polluted. The main reason for this decline in water quality is sediment from new development.

Chapter 3 Maps

Earhart Flight

Our first GIS assignment tracks the flight and disappearance of Amelia Earhart. This assignment shows how GIS can help track and narrow the search for the lost plane.

I also want to post an urgent annoucement. All Creatures Great and Small, a Hendersonville based Shelter is having to close their doors because of the lack of care the animals received. The irony is that these animals will not be euthinized if they are not all adopted by this Friday. I adopted a cat yesterday and she has is great so far. Please visit them this week to adopt an animal, even if you can't keep it. You can always find another home for it. The adoption fee is $65 for cats and $75 for dogs, if they are spayed or neutered. If not they are free.
