Mapping Smith College
Mapping The Smith Campus
In the module developed for the CS I class, the lab takes the student through the exercise of digitizing a map of the Smith College campus, creating a CSV file with the coordinates of the polygons defining the shapes of the buildings, and creating a new map with the coordinates.
The homework part of this module asks the students to merge the csv file containing the coordinates of the building with a second file that contains the year of construction of each building. This allows the generation of a map of the campus where each building is color-coded by its year of construction.
