-Created GIS map comparing Florida election results between 2000 and 2016
-Found a database of registered Florida voters, used that database to create 2 GIS maps showing the spread of Democrats vs. Republicans in both years. Presented maps at NWGIS conference. Project was a collaboration with one other individual; I found the database and created the maps while he chose a color scheme and made the PowerPoint.
-Completed fieldwork mapping fault lines in PA, both GIS and standard
-This project was a group effort consisting of 5 individuals. All of us collected data and most of us helped draw the physical maps. As the only one with GIS experience, I was tasked with digitizing our map.
-Coded an experimental GIS program predicting deforestation in the Amazon based on trends observed through satellite data
-I collected all relevant data through LANDSAT and performed the analysis, however the actual program created to predict future deforestation was a collaboration with one other individual. Work was shared equally.
-Coded a website for a campus organization
-This was a group project consisting of 5 individuals. Labor was divided equally. I coded the layout of several pages, entered the information, and collected the relevant photographs.
-Created an interactive GIS tour of New York City with ArcGIS Online
-This was an individual project. I digitized several NYC landmarks and created the GIS tour with relevant information displayed on the side as well as information regarding the itinerary of a hypothetical tour.
