Ramsey project lead Mark Riverblood collaborated with a team of students in Dr. Ying Song's GEOG 5564 course to use GIS analysis to analyze and propose alternative trail routes that connect two open space areas in Ramsey, taking into account cost and maintenance costs, terrain, property ownership, and other factors. A final student report from this project is available.
