        • NYS GG Lead Projects

          The NYS Geospatial Team works on several different projects:

          1. Soil Painting - - Utlizing soil to create paintings. This medium is used to help educate people about soil health and quality. It is a great way to utilize the "A" in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), to connect people to soil science. This project is taught to 4-H Staff, volunteers and youth. 
          2. Ditch Mapping - Utilizing Survey 123, to collect data regarding the quality of ditches within a particular area. The data can be shared with local Departments of Transportation (DOT's), and best practices can be shared with them about how to improve the quality of the ditches to protect the local streams and rivers from negative consequences of particular ways that ditches may be dug out. 
          3. StoryMap Education - Training provided to 4-H Staff, volunteers and youth on how to utilize and create StoryMaps about their projects. 
          4. County Fair Mapping Displays - Share your GG Lead projects with your county and the public during your county fair.
          5. State Fair GIS Activity Booth - GIS activities are showcased to the public, in the 4-H Youth Building, for the entirety of the fair. Junior Superintendents, Teen and Youth Leaders are recruited to help staff the booth. Youth receive a small daily premium for their time worked in the building. Youth can work one day, or stay in the youth dorms, with a same sex chaperone, and work several days. A Junior Superintendent is hired to work for a large portion of the fair, and is considered a NYS Fair employee, living in the youth dormitory during their employment. Junior Superintendents must be at least 16 years old, apply and interview for the position. Once hired they attend training sessions with the State 4-H Teen Coordinator. 
          6. National GG Lead Team - Members apply to be accepted to the team and attend an International Users Conference, supported by ESRI, in July at San Diego, CA.
