Project Details

The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians contracted with Abrams Aerial Photography to photograph the nearshore area of Grand Traverse Bay. As a result of this work 147 photos were produced. With this grant, the tribe purchased a GIS workstation and contracted with a local company for GIS training and to convert the photos into digital format for GIS mapping. These results are being used to delineate the nearshore habitat types and the data are available to local agencies for land use planning.
