Five Questions about GIS and Science

I’m starting a series of short interviews with working scientists who use GIS. Each interview will consist of the following five questions:

  • Who are you and what do you do?
  • How did you get started with geospatial technology?
  • How does geospatial technology help you do your job / scientific work?
  • How important is a formal process/methodology (for example, the scientific method; the geographic approach) when using geospatial technology in your scientific work?
  • What features or capabilities would make geospatial technology even more valuable for scientific work?

Over the coming months I will be emailing these questions to working scientists, and will post the results on this blog. If you are a scientist working with geospatial technologies and would like to participate, send me an email. Also feel free to forward this to other scientists you know who are using GIS.
