    • Mission
      Service Project
      • Our job was mapping invasive weeds
      Where
      • Tijuana Slough Wildlife Reserve, San Diego, CA
      Why/Purpose
      • To help the reserve by mapping invasive weeds so that they could come in and get rid of the weeds themselves.
    • Reserve Guide
      Showed us what we would be mapping
      Showed us a map of the reserve
      Showed us where we would be mapping
    • First we had to reset our GPS units to metric units
      We did this so that everyone's GPS units would be the same
      and because metric units are universal.
    • Rumex
      Rumex
      Andy and Christina mapped the Rumex
      It is a reddish brown color
      It looks like small milo or sorghum plants
    • Fennel
      Fennel
      Steven and Tracy mapped the Fennel
      It is a light green color
      Smells like black licorice
      The flowers were white and yellow and looked like cauliflower
    • Mapping
      Landscape – Dry
      It was like a desert with dry weeds everywhere.
      There were Jumping Cactuses that somehow got all over you and your clothes.
      It took about two hours to map all the weeds on the reserve.
      From the reserve you could see Mexico and the border which was about a mile away.
    • Assembling and Analyzing Data
      There were four groups. We each put our information on different computers.
      We each put the points and polygons on an aerial photo of the site.
    • .
      Preparing Data for Presentation
      We then merged all of our maps together to make one complete map of the weeds.
    • Finished Map
      The Rumex is in yellow.
      The Fennel is in blue.
    • International GIS Conferences
      We also went to the International ESRI Education and Users Conferences.
      This is Jack Dangermond
      He is the creator of ESRI.
      His company designs the GIS software we used to make our maps.
    • Map Gallery
      Our group worked the 4-H booth during the Map Gallery at the ESRI Users Conference.
      We informed people about our service project and what we did.
      It was fun because we got to meet a lot of new people while informing them about 4-H and GIS.
