mPower Innovations helps local non-profit group create maps for upcoming candlelight snowshoe and ski event.
Niagara, WI- mPower Innovations, a national GIS (Geographic Information System) software and services company based out of Iron Mountain, Michigan is lending their technology to help the Niagara Area Business Association (NABA) map out their ski and snowshoe trails for their fourth annual Candlelight Snowshoe and Ski Event in February.
Using a GPS coordinating device produced by Trimble, mPower Innovations mapped out this year’s trails with pin-point accuracy. The devices they used for this project are the same devices they use to map out assets like power poles, fire hydrants, and metering devices for their clients. The GPS devices connect to two constellations of satellites, one owned by the United States and the other by Russia.
“This is a great community event and we are proud to be a sponsor and help with their maps,” said Daniel Freeman, Marketing Manager for mPower Innovations, “We typically map out assets on a much larger scale but this is a simple service we can provide and we are happy to help.”
The Niagara Area Business Association is hosting its 4th Annual Candleight Ski and Snowshoe event on Saturday, February 3rd. You can register at event or visit www.niagarawi.com for more information.
