Patcha visited the Data & GIS Collab for assistance getting the last piece needed for this article.

Together with the GIS support Students, Jenny Latessa (DAAP) and Shiyu Gong (Geography), they created a map of the study area.

We are happy to see the final published version is now available.  Congratulations and we hope you visit the Data & GIS Collab again.
