Greetings, Fellow GIS Nerds
My name is Blair, born and raised in the Waterloo Region. Like many of the people reading this (and if you are reading this, you're awesome), I have found that working in the GIS field has changed how I examine and analyze the world. I know that we share that feeling of joy when we find a gold-mine source of data, or our exhausted feeling of success when we've finally found a significant relationship or pattern in our data. I hope to be apart of this Renaissance-like community for the long run.
I am currently a graduate student at the Department of Geomatic Engineering at the University of Calgary where I do research on flood mapping. My StoryMap has more details on the work I have been doing, if you are curious. In my undergrad I studied at the Department of Geography, Environment & Geomatics at the University of Guelph.
I have travelled to the following countries: All of the provinces of Canada and one territory (Yukon, which I love!), USA (most of the Eastern and Southren portions), Mexico (solomente Ciudad de México), Iceland (only Reykjavik), The Netherlands and Dominican Republic. Yes, that list is not nearly as long as I wish it were. While I was in Calgary I fell in love with the mountains; I hope to continue to hike the mountains and maybe even one day learn to ice climb. On the side, I found a fun hobby in programing my Tello drone (still learning more about that) and practising spanish (maybe one day I'll do french; I really should, I know).
You can find my GitHub here. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me.
I hope you have a splendid day
P.S. Yes, I am a guy. I know the name throws people off; there are many funny stories I can share about that.
