dc.description.abstract GEOG434 (Maps, Environment, and Society) is an immersive learning class offered in the spring semester of 2021 that aimed to give support to the local businesses and cultural organizations and institutions in Downtown Muncie in their effort to promote economic activities, inform about downtown and attract people to the area. Students from the Geography Program and neighboring fields applied their cartographic skills and GIS knowledge to create interactive and visually attractive maps that invited residents and tourists to visit and recognize Downtown Muncie as a valuable place for shopping, leisure and entertainment. Under the guidance of Professor Dr. Jörn Seemann from the Department of Geography, a group of 21 students worked together with local partner institutions and associations such as DWNTWN Muncie and Muncie Arts & Culture Council to discuss and develop cartographic and other visual material (e.g. paper maps and interactive online maps) that can be used to advertise the Downtown businesses and highlight the qualities and attractions in this area. en_US
