The Long Island GIS Conference was held at Farmingdale State College on April 25, 2018. Student posters displayed were voted on by Conference attendees for the People’s Choice Award for Best Poster. Student posters from SoMAS and Sustainability Studies were accepted for display by Lucy Dibenedetto, Courtney Stuart, Mark Lusty, Cassidy Bell, Matthew McDermott, and Brooke Morrell. These posters were generated as the final projects in GSS 313/314.
Courtney Stuart, a Marine Vertebrate Biology student, received the 2nd Place Award for her poster “Geospatial Analysis of Tiger Shark Distribution and Habitat Utilization Related to Depth and Potential Ontogenetic Diet Shifts Along the Subtidal Eastern Coastline, USA” and Lucy DiBenedetto, a Coastal Environmental Studies student, received the 3rd Place Award for her poster ” A Geospatial Analysis of Quantuck Bay, New York: Making Decisions for Remediation”. They were both participating in URECA and could not attend the LIGIS Conference. They are pictured above with their awards and below with their posters at URECA.
