GeoInspirations:  Amazing People in GIS and Related Fields

Blog Post created by jkerski-esristaff Employee on Oct 6, 2017

The column I write for Directions Magazine called Geoinspirations is now over 1 year old.  It features people who are making a positive difference through their work in GIS, geography, oceanography, climatology, city planning, and related fields. I thank the Directions editors Rebeckah Flowers and Barbaree Duke for believing in this column and supporting it.  I have personally enjoyed very much interacting with the people I have interviewed and written about; just thinking about them makes me smile.  Here is a spiffy new page in Directions Magazine, where they are all featured in a gallery:




Consider using this column to inspire your students, but also to help them see the variety of career pathways possible.


This is a great tribute to these individuals and to our geo-field that we have such a diversity of backgrounds and stories, but with some common visions, too!   


If you know of someone who should be featured, please let me know.
