Measuring Risk in Peterborough
Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and injury in children and youth in Canada. The Peterborough Risk Watch Network aims to reduce the rate and prevalence of injury for children and youth in the city and county of Peterborough, Ontario. The project aims to locate local injury data sources and create a rubric tool that will be used to evaluate the injury data sources for their potential applicability with injury prevention initiatives. The project involves an environmental scan, personal discussions, and the creation of a rubric assessment tool. The environmental scan involves looking for organizations that deal with children and youth in Peterborough and to see if they possess injury information. The number of injury data sources pertaining to Peterborough children and youth is limited. The rubric assessment tool developed is digital and user friendly. The data sources’ usefulness is limited based on the type of information contained does not go into great detail. The future recommendations based on the project outcomes are to investigate a greater variety of organizations for injury data, ensure a greater breakdown of data once collected, and the creation of a centralized child and youth injury data system., By Peyton Schroeder, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: The Peterborough Risk Watch Network; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4080Y - Community-Based Research Project

health of Lake Kasshabog today and tomorrow
The Lake Kasshabog Residents Association (LKRA) would like to develop a tool, using a Geographic Information System (GIS), which would be accessible to certain members of the association. With this tool they would be able to describe the extent of damage that shoreline modifications, invasive plant species, fishing practices, etc. are causing to the lake. Using Microsoft Access, a database of field data has been created which has been attached to a digital map of the area. The tools provided with this application allow the user to manipulate the data into a visual representation and to see exactly what is happening to the ecology of Lake Kasshabog. It will be a useful aid for any study done on the lake, and for determining if the lake is improving over time., Executive summary -- Table of contents -- List of figures -- List of appendices -- 1.0 Introduction. 1.1 The client. 1.2 The problem. 1.3 Background information/study area. 1.4 Objectives -- 2.0 Methodology. 2.1 Importing and modifying the data. 2.2 Creating the themes. 2.3 Creating and linking the database. 2.4 Displaying the data in a 3D scene. 2.5 Graphic user interface (GUI) development -- 3.0 Project results -- 4.0 Discussion and conclusions. 4.1 Risk assessment. 4.2 Limitations of the project. 4.3 Potential improvements of the project., by Shawn Seawright. --, Includes: final research report., Completed for: Terry Rees at the Lake Kasshabog Residents' Association; Supervising Professor: Graham Cogley, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2003., GEOG 440, Research in Physical Geography, Community-based research project.

The primary purpose of this project was to measure the extent of acid and polluting pulses during spring thaw in four lakes in the Haliburton Forest, each impacted differently.
