NJ DEP Map Contest 2014

NJ's latest Map Contest has come and gone and Rutgers, once again , was well represented among the winners, which are posted online. It is hard for me to ever identify all of the former Rutgers students that particpate, like Chuck Colvard with his detailed mapping of Paterson. But I can clearly identify current student Eden Buenaventura, whose coastal resiliency map (below) brought home 3 awards including the 4th Annual Gail Carter Science Award. Outstanding!

A special congratulations goes to the high school students from the Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science in Ocean County. They went toe-to-toe with the professionals and came out great. Who knows, maybe they'll re-enter the competition in a few years as Geomatics students from Rutgers. Great job.
