Just recently earning my Master's Degree in GIS for Development and Environment, I have extensive experience conducting spatial analysis ranging from land change modeling to hot-spot analysis.
Although I have experience in more advanced GIS operations I am thoroughly familiar and comfortable with more intermediate tasks such as creating polygons, buffers, data digging and cleaning, map creation, creating interactive maps from GPS coordinates, and converting between data types.
As a burgeoning professional in the geospatial sciences I am interested in exploring the various applications of GIS provided by freelance opportunities for businesses and internet-based organizations who seek to visualize their data spatially.
