DPRK Project with iMMAP/WFP, 2010
I’ve really enjoyed my time working on the project. Since I work seasonally, it is nice to have some GIS work in the off-season to keep me on my toes and make contacts I might not make otherwise. And every project I work on, volunteer or otherwise, leads me to new discoveries within ArcMap that make my job easier and more efficient. It would be nice to have a video conference at some point during the project just to meet some of the other team members “face-to-face”.
I fell into GIS while working for the US Forest Service as a Hydrologist almost 15 years ago when most tasks were done via command line. I had an aptitude for it that has helped form my career ever since. GIS even led me to meeting my husband at a conference (double nerd alert!). Now that he is retired from the Forest Service, and I work part-time, we have more time to volunteer and travel.
