I recently got to go to a conference called ShiftCon that tries to join together bloggers and environmentally- concerned organizations and organic companies to bring awareness to the mainstream. A lot of the people in the room were like me - a little green - so the impact of the Center for Food Safety's map showing glysphosate use in relation to the declining Monarch butterfly populations there was an audible gasp in the room.
The power of visuals indeed. (attached)
I haven't started it yet, but I reached out to a couple of companies for any work they may need done, since I know GIS. I got one possible bite that will help my resume look better.
Health and environmental causes tie together to me, so those subjects are my strongest interest I would like to continue in with GIS. We shall see where it takes me.
