ESRI and The Lake George Association

Through the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) Conservation Grant Program, the Lake George Association received a discounted copy of ESRI's GIS software ArcView (9.3) in 2010. Along with ArcView 9.3, we also received ArcGIS Spatial Analyst and ArcGIS 3D Analyst. We have since continued to receive a maintenance grant (2011 & 2012) that has allowed the LGA to stay current with the most recent upgrades to the software program (ArcGIS 10.1).

The software has enabled the LGA to continue to utilize GIS in our everyday work. Some of the examples of the maps we have produced utilizing the ESRI ArcGIS (10.1) software are shown below. The software has allowed us to better manage the fight against the Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea). ArcGIS has helped us track materials used and future needs, outline the areas of infestation and matting locations, clam locations, ported mats, number of mats per location and will also allow us to better manage removal of the mats and our follow up surveys. The maps were created with data collected from the different dive teams working in the field as well as volunteers and field notes. We were able to import their GPS points into ArcGIS. We utilized the aerial photos from ESRI as basemaps for displaying the data. We look forward to continuing our partnership with ESRI as we carry on with our GIS work within the watershed.
