I have a BSc Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries and GIS and a MSc Degree in Watershed Science and Ecology. The majority of my work experience is in academic and government research where I developed and implemented numerical and spatial models for natural resources management. I enjoy teaching GIS and programming, and want to share how free, open source options for GIS analysis and cartography can be used for basic and complex analyses without purchasing expensive software.
