GIS Analyst
At the BMC I produce high quality maps for analysis. Our most popular mapping topics are transportation and demographics. I create and maintain our GIS data, metadata and ensure that we adhere to industry standards. I manage and design our map templates and maintain the web applications that I design. I have been working in the field of GIS since 2010, earning a graduate certificate in GIS and spatial analysis in 2012. I have worked alongside archaeologists, homeland security and emergency services and now regional planners.
