Finding Ning Po: Using GPS/GIS to Map Historical Artifacts in Catalina Harbor
Caroline Dunlap, GIS Analyst, Florence County GIS

In November of 2013, Caroline traveled to Catalina Island, CA to participate in a week-long GPS/GIS Field Techniques excursion through the University of Southern California’s GIST Graduate certificate program. This presentation will give a basic overview of the excursion and go into detail of the final project completed on the island, which involved using GPS and GIS to locate and map an ancient Chinese Junk (ship) called the Ning Po resting in the peaceful waters of Catalina Harbor. The main focus of the presentation will be on the rich and colorful history of Catalina’s Isthmus and to discuss the important role modern spatial technologies play in helping us understand the past.
Caroline Dunlap has been working with Florence County since 2008 as a GIS Analyst.
