Greetings from a funemployed GISer/WWOOFer in SW USA
Posted 26 February 2012 - 05:56 PM
During this time, I always look to make connections in the GIS world. I've attended URISA/GIS Consortums in Washington and Colorado. I managed to find some volunteer work in Minnesota and New Mexico as well. I also got a ESRI ArcGIS 10 home use license! My biggest problem has been 'what to map?'. I have thought of making maps for my hosts so that they can give to volunteers to find them easier.
I'm thrilled that that this forum exists! I mss talking shop with folks and the map gallery is sure to inspire me on my 'what to map' conundrum.
Talk to you all soon!

Hi and welcome! Sounds like an interesting background - are you now looking at getting back into the GIS/cartography game?
I would love to get back into the GIS game----eventually. But I'm thoroughly enjoying my imposed sabbatical though. I like to stay in touch with the game though. I've dabbled with idea of going into business for myself (a google search on the topic brought me to this user group/forum.) But knowing what I know about myself, I don't think it's something I would be happy doing. Coupled with the fact that 4-5 years seems still inexperienced makes the venture seem overly ambitious.
