I work in a fishbowl called the Map, there Data & GIS Library. Iâ€™m always on the frontline helping students with a variety of requests from navigating Mackenzie Chown Complex to extracting remote sensing data or using HTML to make a web mapping application! I LOVE to help students and thrive on geospatial data requests or GIS problem-solving issues. When Iâ€™m not helping students, Iâ€™m working on digitization projects that make historical map documents GIS-ready.
For example:Â historical topo maps;Â historical air photos; andÂ historical maps. I also try to keep the MDGL on the cutting edge of technologyâ€¦often my ideas are ahead of their time. None-the-less, exploring geospatial data availability, quality and delivery are my priority so that the Brock University community is served the best data to meet their teaching and research needs. I love my job!
