This is Voeltner’s fourth year teaching the Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, class. It is one of the electives that’s part of Hoover High School’s Information Technology Academy.

“We had been wanting to get a new career path opportunity for the students and we had been hearing that GIS was a growing field,” he said.

The students maps are part of a project called City Heights Urban Greening that his firm, KTU+A, is working on for the City of San Diego.

“What we’re doing is improving the corridors in City Heights in terms of storm water treatment, bicycle and pedestrian facilities to essentially get more people walking and biking within City Heights,” he said.
