Day 25, June 27

Today was our last day to prepare for our presentations in the morning! I cannot believe that we’ll all be leaving in less than forty eight hours. I’m going to be so sad to see everyone go. I may have not known these people that long but after living together for a month I have […]

Day 24, June 26

Today was a long data analysis day. I can feel my eyes bugging out from staring at a computer screen for so long. I have been running different analysis, most of which I have never used before. It never ceases to amaze me just how many different tool are embedded in ArcGIS. I have finally […]

Day 23, June 25

Not much to report today. It was a barn day dedicated to getting everything sorted out. I spent most of the day trying to get all of the data in a useable format as well as correcting the points using the base station information. I have started trying out some new tools that I’ve never […]

Day 22, June 24

I spent today in the field collecting the last of my data. It was tiring but nice to stretch my legs. Embedded exercise is one good thing about field work. I completed what I hope was a fairly systematic transect of the study area. I took points at the start and end of each wall, […]

Day 21, June 23

Today was completely amazing! It was our day off so we intended to make the most of it. There were three groups that went their separate ways doing different things. I ended up in a car with Emily, Briton, Scott, and Courtney. It nice to be in a group with Scott especially since he had […]

Day 20, June 22

Today was a day for data processing. I finally feel like I’m starting to get a product. Although I have been gathering information it’s just now beginning to come together in a visual way. I work best with visual media and seeing something on the screen other than random points and attribute tables is gratifying. […]

Day 19, June 21

Today was a day full of taking points and pictures. Hundreds of pictures. I have started collecting photos that I hope to use in Photoscan to render a 3d model to aid the visualization of the sites. It’s just so hard to really get a good idea what’s there from 2d images or aerial photography. […]

Day 18, June 20

It’s rainy today. We headed out to the field and started to look at the south wall. We used the clinometer to measure the angle of the wall as well as taking end points with the GPS. Unfortunately we were having Trimble problems and couldn’t manage to get it working which limited our data collection. […]

Day 17, June 19

Today was a long day. I haven’t been this tired in a long time. After a fitful night’s sleep we headed into the field with some new gadgets. Jessica and I were using a laser range finder as well as a clinometer. These were used to measure distance and angle. We started by finding the […]

Day 16, June 18

Research and discussion were the main events of the day. It was tiring in the way that long meetings are, but we got quite a bit accomplished that was necessary. The professors met us in the morning at the barn to finally start talking about our personal projects. Some of the ideas worked others needed […]
