Over the course of three months, my research partner and I explored the three major neighborhoods of the rural farming community of San Luis de Monteverde, Costa Rica. Along the way, we made over 150 waypoints on a handheld GPS to indicate different buildings while tracking the roads and paths we walked along to get there. We then generated maps by merging this data with QGIS software and layering the data over Google satellite imagery of the area. This was the first time the map of San Luis de Monteverde had been updated in twelve years. These updated maps will aid emergency workers in improving service to the community, be a helpful resource in the community of San Luis, and allow future students and researchers to do more in-depth GPS projects.
