GIS Survey of the Flying L Ranch

Poster Presentation

Research Project Abstract

Rising populations continue to increase demand for more housing and resources, leaving little room for wild and open green spaces. As a result, our human societies are becoming disconnected from the natural world and losing access to recreation in the remaining spaces. The “Flying L Ranch,” managed through the Dishman Hills Conservancy (DHC) in Spokane, WA, will provide 179 acres of land for conservation and public access. Our project will focus on inventorying notable features such as fences, drainage, and foundations, as well as utilizing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to map these features. This work will aid the DHC in trail planning and building, which will increase and expand the Spokane community’s access to green spaces and recreation.
