GIS/GPS Mapping of the Southern Appalachian Stone Structures
We are looking for volunteers, who would like to be on a special People of One Fire committee, Southern Appalachian Stone Structures. Beginning in the fall after the undergrowth has died down, we will be mapping the mountaintop and hilltop stone structures in northern Georgia, northeastern Alabama, southeastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, southwestern Virginia and northern South Carolina. The latitude, longitude, altitude and description will be inserted on a GIS map with software produced by ERSI. My GPS surveying devise can be linked into a computer for absolute accuracy.
You will need to be in sufficient physical condition to climb mountains. Owning a handheld GPS device will be a great asset. This will be a great way to make friends and get back to your youthful physique (or something approximate to that.)
If interested, drop me an email. If you have a better name for the group, also drop me an email! LOL
It is a task that is long overdue!
