Campus Plaque Project
In order to document the generosity of donors to Washington College, interns at the GIS Lab worked together to create a searchable database and map of all the plaques found on campus.
In order to make it easier for donors to find the location of their plaques, GIS interns Emily Scherer ‘14 and Michael Wieder ‘14 created a database of plaques that makes it easy to search by surname or by building. The database also includes maps of each building on campus that shows the location of each plaque in that building. In addition, the database contains photographs of each individual plaque. The database is made available through the Alumni Relations office for visiting donors.
