Emily Gillis  BSc, Studying GIS

Aficionado for all things GIS

As a Geologist by trade, GIS has always been present in my world in many subtle ways.  Visualizing the Earth's subsurface and interpreting big data sets are common daily tasks for resource Geologists, tasks that defined my ideal Career.  Now that I have taken the leap to study GIS full time, I marvel at the vast array of applications for geospatial data, analysis, and interpretation in just about any business and cause.  Here's to unlimited exploring!
