Canyon Lake Project
GIS is utilized both in field research and in management of the specimens within the repository.
The Canyon Lake project (illustrated at right) required the mapping and specimen collection through a long section of the Cretaceous Glen Rose Formation near Canyon Lake, Texas.
Specimen collection sites were pinpointed with GPS, relevant data about them was added into the field computer database, and images were synchronized to the same GPS point.
Specimens were identified and split between the repository and the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) educational project.
