Hi all,

I've been a professional archaeologist for the past 13 years. I also have an academic background in fine art and the conservation sciences. For the past 4+ years GIS has been incorporated into my professional role. Until 6 months ago, I worked at a large engineering firm as an archaeologist and GIS Specialist. I recently started my own GIS consulting firm. My interests lie in cartography as well as 3D and Spatial Analyst Extensions (ESRI). Specifically, my areas of expertise include archaeology, anthropology, and the social sciences. Unfortunately, I don't have much work I am able to submit for feedback, since archaeological data is sensitive and protected under state and federal laws.

Nonetheless, I look forward to getting to know colleagues and learning a lot from everyone! Cheers,

Hi Raena,

Welcome to Cartotalk! I think it's great to see more social scientists engage with GIS and cartography. I have a socio-cultural anthropological background and think GIS is an underutilized tool in that rubric.

Thanks Matthew, I agree 100%.

I lived in Portland before I moved to Spokane. I miss it terribly.
