As part of the ICIGO student organization within the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences, students examined wayfinding placement in Webster City, Iowa. They used Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools to identify and recommend placement locations for signage within the city. 

Webster City requested assistance with several GIS projects. The students updated and maintained easement and land records, as well as examined the overall use of GIS within Webster City to determine best practices. 

The ICIGO students also worked in conjunction with several other student groups to provide high-quality GIS maps and aerials for various projects.
