Day job: GIS Analyst/Developer, Northgate Environmental

GIS Focus: Mobile mapping, geotagged social media, asset management, public art, data modeling, and UAVs.

Nancy recently graduated with an M.S. in GIS Technology/Spatial Science from USC. Her thesis project, The San Francisco Public Art Map web application won several awards and was featured in Atlantic Cities.

GIS is important to me beacause: I’m interested in how geographic information can reveal a different story through visualizing and analyzing data. I love how GIS can bring data from disparate sources together to illuminate an issue. GIS can help people and organizations make better-informed decisions.
