“In July, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) invited the National 4-H GIS Leadership Team and EquipoGIS, an international youth group, to conduct geographic information system (GIS)-based service projects for the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The results of their projects were presented at ESRI’s Education User Conference in San Diego, California.

“The first project was conducted at Gunpowder Point, an area that was once the site of the Hercules Powder Company Plant, where kelp was processed into acetone that was used to make cordite, a smokeless gunpowder used by the British during World War I.”
