|Title:||GIS Specialist - Student Employee|
I am a student in the new Geomatics Engineering program at Utah Valley University (UVU) , it is a degree for those interested in drafting, mapping or land surveying. Throughout the program I have found a particular interest in ArcMap or ArcGIS, this is a computer programs that allows GPS information to be plotted and joined to different kinds of base maps. Here at UVU we use ArcGIS to plot the locations of each student, thus allowing us to view the quantity from each county, state, house or senate district, census block, country, or any other desired location. We can also specify these same maps according to gender, ethnicity, origin, etc. I have been working with ArcGIS at UVU since October of 2011.
