Overview

Do you use the bike racks or solar recycling bins? Have you noticed the low-flush toilets at the MSC? Or perhaps somewhere you have seen sprinklers watering on a rainy day and wondered, "Is there anything I can do to change that?" Through crowdsourcing and GIS, you can offer opportunities to raise awareness!

The GeoInnovation Service Center and the Texas A&M Office of Sustainability have partnered to bring to you Aggieland's first-ever sustainability data collection tool through mobile technology. Use cutting-edge mapping technology on your phone to share your discoveries and insights about what makes our campus sustainable or how it can be improved. 

Take part in this exciting event now by collecting data anywhere on campus. It's easy! Just download the Esri ArcGIS app  and follow the instructions.
