|Personal Description :|| I graduated as a geographer several datum changes ago, and remember clearly discovering the magic of gdal in my search to become digital and shpless. Now, 40 years later, I don’t know anyone that can’t find their way through the world using mobile mapping tools.
At a MapServer user meeting in Ottawa in 2004, I found and embraced a vibrant, innovative and sociable community of such diversity, everyone had a place, and a role in growing a movement.
As a participant and presenter at several FOSS4G conferences, I know how passionate OSGeo is about our community. In whatever small way I may have contributed, I have gained far more in return.
I am particularly interested in engaging community in land use decision making, and in mapping the negotiated and overlapping jurisdiction of colonial and indigenous world views.I am fortunate to call the Yukon home, but I still stay connected with my OSGeo family everywhere. I value and respect diversity; and honour those who give of themselves to further the dreams of others.
