Other activities carried out in this lab include: collecting and modifying topographic maps, preparing digitized and GIS referenced maps with related features, DGPS measurements, presenting a general overview of geography, population, climate, water resources, water flows, dams, wastewater, water withdrawals, irrigation and drainage, on maps, survey and collect various data, and analyzing that data.
