Data and App Integration for Key Conservation and BC Marine Trails
Jeffrey’s Experience: Both of the organizations I’ve worked with through GISCorps have provided excellent opportunities for me to grow technically and improve my ability to gather requirements. More importantly, these nonprofits have invited me into their virtual workspaces to understand how their passions translate into data that can be mapped for important causes; e.g. connecting people who value habitat conservation or making it easy to find information about your next kayaking trip.
Why Jeffrey Volunteers: Volunteering has been an interesting way for me to observe how people are using GIS software and solving spatial problems in a way that I wouldn’t encounter in my daily work. I think it’s fantastic that GISCorps is able to quickly connect technicians who like solving puzzles with people who are excited to share their stories and spread information for good causes.
