Mapping the Past

May 4, 2018

Adjunct professor of geography Dr. George Coles uses LiDAR technology to map the past. He mapped features of the paleo-channels of the nearby Aucilla and Econfina Rivers and identified a mound along the Econfina channel that is “very close” to a Native American shell midden, a pile of the shell and bone remains of prehistoric dinners. This story about Dr. Coles research is featured in the May/June 2018 issue of the Tallahassee Magazine. Read all about it here.
