GISDoctor.com was first developed during the summer of 2009 to bring a wide range of spatially enabled folks a GIS resource for any number of topics. During the snowy winter of 2011 the site was migrated to a blog format so that I could easily update the content and blog on a variety of different GIS related topics.
On this site I will post about geospatial analysis, interesting online mapping applications, GIS software, or whatever else is on my mind…
As always, the code, techniques, and ideas on this site are available to readers, as long as they provide a link back to GISDoctor.com.
Who is the GIS Doctor?
My name is Ben Spaulding and I am a professional geographer. I’ve been working in the “geo”fields for over eight years in a number of different positions. I was a project manager/web programmer/GIS tech for a web technology start-up, a GIS analyst and developer for a state data center, and now I am analyst for a catastrophic risk modeling firm.
I earned a Ph.D. in geography from UCONN with a focus in geospatial analysis. I develop geospatial models, methods of storing and sharing spatial data.
