Back on GeoNet, from New Zealand

Ok, so this is about my 3rd or 4th GeoNet account, but it is good to be back. I just joined the Eagle Technology Team in New Zealand where I am a consultant on the GIS Solutions Team. My focus will be helping public safety and national agencies to use GIS in new and innovative ways to solve critical problems. On my personal time, I am hoping to work with some of local search and rescue teams with GIS as well.


I am doing a lot of work with ArcGIS Pro right now, including some tutorials for search and rescue. I am also implementing a wide variety of apps using ArcGIS Online, especially on field mobility (Collector, Workforce, Explorer, GeoForm, etc).


There is a lot to learn about GIS in New Zealand, but I joined an extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and fun team lead by Scott Campbell. I hope to hit the ground running.


It is great to be here in New Zealand, a beautiful country with truly excellent people. Everyone here has been so nice in helping us get settled in and find the best hiking (tramping), restaurants, coffee shops, and of course microbreweries (map pending).
