Municipal Mapping

Sofia Kehyaian Pereira ’13 is working with South Whitehall Township outside of Bethlehem to map the municipality’s service areas, including street signs, traffic lights, water and sewer lines, and fire hydrants. According to the South Whitehall Patch, the system will allow the township to capture and manage the information -- and better respond to resident needs. A senior in the Integrated Business and Engineering (IBE) program concentrating in mechanical engineering, Pereira is part of a years-long project to build a database of the township's infrastructure, and create maps, by using a geographic information system (GIS).
