July 2018 GeoMentor Spotlight

 

Jack Nessen - GIS Coordinator at Salem Sound Coastwatch

 

What was your favorite class in K-12? Science!

 

How did you first learn about and/or use GIS? Conducting Natural Resource Inventories in the Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire with Aubson Sargent Land Trust.

 

Name one thing you love about GIS and/or geography: The fact that there are some many GIS applications across the fields of natural resource sciences and management and that everything you can map is REAL!

 

Why did you want to volunteer as a GeoMentor? To promote GIS content throughout elementary, middle and high school science curriculum.

 

If someone asked you why they should learn about GIS and/or geography, how would you respond in one sentence? Going to answer with a GIS pun here: Because GIS "relates" us to and "joins" us with the world around us! Ouch that was corny....
