GPS

We used a GPS system in order to locate and mark the locations of certain things for a green map, such as bike paths, recycling, and local businesses. While the mapping was quite enjoyable, there were so many things to map, as well as where we should be mapping. Some things are quite hard to map due to where they are located and how big of an area it took up. If we found a bike path, we can’t keep marking it all the way down, we just marked one point of it, so it’s not entirely an accurate depiction of the bike path. If we found a bike parking area, there was no way to mark the entire area, only stand in the center and mark that one location, which again does not accurately place the parking lot in relation to how much space it takes up.
