What is your wish for this project?

My wish is to map the impact zones surrounding the area where a compressor station is proposed to be installed in my community. The proposed compressor station is hazardous to people, animals, and the environment. I joined a local group that is putting much effort into stopping the compressor station from being installed. The map will help citizens identify where they are located within the "zones".

How did it go?

Using Esri and ArcGIS mapping software, I mapped the impact, incineration, and health zones that represent areas where people, animals, and the environment would be affected by the compressor station. I made two maps: one representing population density and one representing the impact zones. The maps were printed on a 2x3 foam board, and displayed at a local harvest block party and group meetings!
