I offer advanced geospatial consulting services based primarily on open source data management and mapping platforms. As noted in many places on my website, I am also a visual artist and can develop maps with beautiful cartography. While my original background in GIS was based on ArcGIS, I now work with the following platforms and can do so with few interoperability issues with ArcGIS-based clients:

  • Desktop mapping: QGIS
  • Vector Data Management: PostGIS (an enterprise level geospatial database system) and Spatialite.
  • Raster Data Management: QGIS and GRASS.

I have extensive experience with a variety of on-line mapping platforms, including the Google Maps API and OpenLayers. I can assist with scripting and automating for large projects and repetitive tasks. I also have experience consulting on GIS for subjects other than biology.
