Mapping in Senegal!

Over twenty students, faculty, and staff participated in the third annual mapping party at MCC's Downtown campus. The event was hosted by MCC's Mapping Club, Geography/Geospatial program, the Global Education and International Services Office, and the Student Events and Governance Association. Students mapped buildings in Senegal to collect data on buildings, roads, and drainage needed to address impacts from erosion as a result of sea level rise and flood events. The data that emerges from this mapping task will reduce vulnerability to natural hazards. For more information on MCC's Mapping Club and the GIST program, please contact Jonathon Little (
