They’re using Trimble GPS units, GPS-enabled camcorders and a laser rangefinder and metric tape to capture as much information on the site as possible. The data will then be used for facilities, engineering, master planning, and updates to the Army’s real property inventory.

Visualizing a Changing Region, block by block

While it does not cover the entire state of New Jersey, it does cover a large chunk and a majority of the population in the state. The analysis dovetails nicely with our research studying land use changes over time. It is also a really slick, well designed interface. They spent the effort customizing OpenLayers to get the slider interface to work just right, and I think it adds a new element to exploring and comparing data from two different time periods.
