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.
