About Me

I originally started this website as a place to put my recent GIS work. My previous GIS work had been in the oil industry and therefore proprietary. I can tell people about it, but I can’t show it to anyone. While working at BP, all my map making was in ArcGIS. Over the last couple years, I’ve largely switched to open-source tools for building web-based maps. I’ve used Altair, GeoPandas, cartoDB, d3.js, mapbox.js, and leaflet.js.
