WHO DRC Mapathon – 2017 & 2018, Fort Bend County (Hurricane Harvey) – 2017, One Shared Story – 2019
My first project with GISCorps was the World Health Organization crowdsourcing polio eradication initiative to map all structures in the region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the most recent project was to build an ArcGIS Hub Initiative site for One Shared Story, a non-profit organization whose volunteers assist community groups in researching, preserving, and curating hidden histories.
Working with GISCorps is a humbling opportunity to give back to your community and help organizations with diverse projects ranging from crowdsourcing and disaster response to WebGIS.
It was a great experience working on these projects and certainly has a tremendous influence in both my professional and personal life. Some key skills that I gained are time management, problem solving and remote collaboration. I look forward to working on many more GISCorps projects in the future.
