Dardanelle High School EAST student Trey spoke about his EAST GIS projects at the Arkansas GIS Users Forum Biennial Symposium and Training Conference in Eureka Springs.

Dardanelle High School EAST student Trey spoke at the Arkansas GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Users Forum Biennial Symposium and Training Conference in Eureka Springs, October 28th, about his current and previous EAST GIS (Geographic Information Science) projects. During the presentation "Geospatial Endeavors in EAST" presented by Robin Gregory from CAST (University of Arkansas), Ryan discussed his EAST GIS projects.

Trey is developing a scenario using ARCGIS development software to see where the waters from the Dardanelle Lake would flow into Dardanelle should the Dardanelle Dam break. During the 2008-09 school year, Trey also worked with the City of Dardanelle by developing a map of the Dardanelle City fire Hydrants and provided the school district with a map of the bus routes. This past summer, Ryan worked with Dr. Diane Gleason, professor from Arkansas Tech, to create a map of the "Dardanelle Bottoms" in which the Arkansas River channel from present was layered with the current river channel. Additionally, the Dardanelle Bottoms map provided locations for early settlements of the same area. The map will be included in the Gleason research publication.

The Arkansas GIS Users Forum is a volunteer organization comprised of people who use and develop GIS information throughout the state to enhance of the idea of where we are and what we can do at a place on this earth.

The Dardanelle High School EAST program provides students with emerging technology to solve real world problems. Students work on community projects to get a sense of community service. They work in teams to learn the skills of teamwork, self-directed learning, leadership, problem solving and critical thinking. The DHS EAST program was incorporated into the school curriculum in 2002.
