As a senior GIS analyst, David employs GIS and GPS technologies as analytical and representational tools in natural resource investigations. He likes working in Environmental Services, knowing the work we do will help clients and regulatory agencies make informed decisions when planning, permitting, and executing projects.
David acquires and integrates baseline GIS data with GPS and engineering data to create an understanding of the spatial relationships of existing and proposed resources in any given project area. This understanding enhances the decision-making process by clearly identifying and quantifying the costs and benefits of project alternatives. David and his team have been working on a transition to digital data collection. They adopted the use of iPads with cloud-based mapping applications for conducting most field work and are moving towards the implementation of digital data forms.
David’s wife and three kids are his focus outside of work. They often spend time outdoors doing things like kayaking, hiking, and sledding.
