Subject Line: X Marks the Spot at Map Camp

As part of the larger initiative to promote mapping the UK Department of Geography held its first MapCamp led by NMP instructor Boyd Shearer. The week long day camp featured exercises in map making and outdoor geo-challenges. Attendees participated in the ancient craft of cartography, built digital interactive maps to share with the world, and conducted campus treasure hunts with GPS-enabled mobile devices. MapCamp is one more way that New Maps Plus and UK’s Geography Department are actively engaging with the community.
