GIS and Football in the GRMC

GIS for Game Day: Ball State University Football Map

Football season officially begins today at Ball State University with the first practice of the year. Assistant Coach Eddie Faulkner greets his running backs each season with a large poster showing where the players live. The GIS Specialist in the Geospatial Resources & Map Collection Angela Gibson created this map for Coach Faulkner using GIS software. The map was then printed on the large-format plotter in the GRMC for display in the football office.

Contact the GRMC to inquire about the creation of custom GIS maps for special research projects or to print a poster on the large-format plotter. Charges for printing are sent directly to the Bursar’s office.
