Not your typical Community College Department....

(Click to Enlarge)

Above is a quick and simple geocoding of home addresses for students that were enrolled in programs in the Department of Natural Resources Management at Haywood Community College from Fall 2007 through Fall 2008. There were even a few points that were still out of view at this zoom.

As you can see several of our programs attract students from well outside of our community. You can imagine how saturated the map would be if it included all of our alumni. Our plan is to develop an interactive map like this for current students and alumni to allow them to connect with each other for social and professional purposes.

Map Notes: Thank you Jonathan V. for the Raw Data! Certificates, Diplomas, and A.A.S. degrees were grouped in programs with multiple offerings. Each point represents an individual student. Individual student course loads vary. n=349.
