2012 Student Scholars Day
GIS Mapping of Charlton Park Participants attending from 11:00 a.m.
until 12:00 p.m. Presenters: Aaron Howe This poster presentation uses
ARC GIS technology to understand spatial relationships and site
formation processes at Indian Landing, a mid to late 19th century
historic site located in Charlton Park, Barry County, Michigan.
Originally thought to be a Methodist mission school for Native
Americans, historic documentation and artifacts recovered from the site
suggest later uses as a farmstead. GIS analysis details the depositional
history, site formation processes and uses of the site, and makes
possible more sophisticated interpretations. Mentor: Janet Brashler
