Jessica’s experience volunteering with GISCorps: I enjoy supporting GISCorps missions and am amazed by all of the collaborative efforts that go into the missions. With the Covid Testing project, we are helping people in real-time. The new testing site we add today could help someone get a test tomorrow. I love working with volunteers from across the country and world on projects and have learned a few GIS tricks that I use at my day job.
Why Jessica volunteers: I volunteer because I want to use my specialized GIS skills to help others. With the Mountain Rescue Association, I am able to use my expertise in Survey123 and user support to aid their mission data collection and management project.
