This presentation of applied geography focuses on the monitoring the impacts of a new Health Sciences Campus created by the efforts of New York State and Binghamton University in a small, declining city in Upstate New York. Story Map is the vehicle for portraying a range of local data, maps, video interviews of community stakeholders, spatial viewing, drone flights, big data, and more. It provides a dynamic representation of changing activities and outcomes as the economic revitalization process evolves. The Department of Geography and the GIS Core Facility are responsible for the entire monitoring process and work closely with our University President. The project brings together the varied skills of a number of faculty, staff and students in monitoring the process over a number of years.
