From IEP to ADGIS and Beyond — Back in 2012, I took the Integrated Environmental Planning program and had my first introduction to Geographic Information Systems and its applications in the environment. Unfortunately, I chose a different education path, although a Bachelors of Environmental Science and a few years later working in invasive plant management, I found myself still thinking about GIS.

Drone Surveying: The Devil in the Details — After completing the ADGIS program at Selkirk College in April 2017, I was fortunate enough to score one of the 5 Co-op positions at the SGRC. Joey Plessis and I were selected to work as a team on the RDCK Parks UAV Project.
Evan Amies-Galonski - 21/7/17 8 a.m.

The Fine Art of Open Data: A GIS Survival Guide for the Arithmophobic — I began the BGIS program at Selkirk College in September 2016. This was a mid-life choice, being more than ready to develop in a new direction after years working as a library assistant and taking numerous, unfocused undergraduate courses.
