3-D Maps on Display at Ball State University Libraries

Celebrating Earth Day with Maps at Ball State University Libraries

Tomorrow is Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate than with maps of beautiful places around the world!  The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) is exhibiting maps created by students from Dr. Jody Rosenblatt-Naderi’s Landscape Architecture 602 class. 

The models depict places around the world, including the rain forest of Costa Rica, a canoe race in Bora Bora, and rice terraces in China.  The students created the maps using paper maps and GIS data from the GRMC.

The maps are located on the front cabinets in the GRMC on the second floor of Bracken Library.  The display will run through the month of April.

For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
