When you blog, sometimes the strangest things happen. I still find it hard to believe that a blog I did about Nebraska waterfalls a while back actually became a college class project for a graduate student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha! But, I learned last night that such was the case.
Lacey Matney, a grad student in the Master of Science in Urban Studies program at UNO, dropped me an email message indicating that she had turned my blog post on waterfalls into a story map for a class she is taking. Say, what?
She writes: “The GIS I class at UNO is making story maps for the Nebraska GIS/LIS Association (there’s a statewide competition). Paul Hunt is collecting the maps (firstname.lastname@example.org).”

Lacey also has her own travel blog under the pseudonym Mathilda.
Thanks so much, Lacey, for using one of my blog posts and promoting Nebraska’s beautiful natural wonders!
