The area of interest is categorizing the environments throughout UWF including land marks and interesting places people might want to go under the UWF umbrella. The goal is to identify the land that UWF owns by it physical properties and categorize the areas into classes that will represent what that area is good for. This will give us a picture of the variety of things the University has to offer.
The locations will be places that people may want to visit. I do not know the actual locations yet. I need to get my hands on some maps and I then I can really start to lay it out.
I plan to collect the following: soil, water, vegetation, wildlife, elevation, coordinates, photographs and audio recordings. I plan to test the soil’s pH and nutrients content.
I plan to compile the data with HTML. That appears to be the most practical way to display this data. I plan for the front page to be a map that has locations that can be clicked on that will take the viewer to a page that include an image, description, soil and water test results, coordinates, elevation, and what ever other information I gather. In addition, I will present the samples and photographs and maps and data on boards and tables.
