GIS Interns create interactive historic maps for EVHS

With its new website, the Etowah Valley Historical Society has digitalized Bartow County history through its Bartow History Scholars Program and interactive map offerings.

To provide these new website features, the EVHS partnered with the Bartow County Geographic Information System and Kennesaw State University. With the assistance of Nancy Pullen, director of KSU’s Geographic Information Science program, KSU’s four GISc interns — Judy Morice, Robbie Bagby, Michael Vest and Matt Lloyd — invested more than 1,200 contact hours researching and collecting historical data last semester.

For Tim Poe, former Bartow County GIS coordinator, the opportunity to participate in this project was an “enlightening” experience.
