Stimulus and GIS Tidbits

The University of Central Florida received the $1.3 million federal grant from stimulus funds to study walking, cycling and gardening initiatives aimed at getting residents active.

Using focus groups, self-reporting, GIS mapping and physical activity measuring devices, researchers will gather data on the 183 participants’ physical activity over the course of two years.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission has received a $1.74 million grant from stimulus funds to restore longleaf pine in the state.

The Forestry Commission says the money translates funds for private landowners and job creation in the state’s number-one manufacturing industry. The Longleaf Pine Restoration Initiative will create or retain jobs that will include equipment operators, tree planters, herbicide applicators, GIS specialists, foresters, and forest technicians.
