I am a masters student in the George Mason University Geographic and Cartographic Sciences
Some of my other experience has stemmed from my service with a student-led humanitarian mapping club called Mason Mappers. I am currently the secretary of the club and I have held a couple of OpenStreetMap workshops designed to showcase the features of the software. Special events called “Map-a-thons” have been hosted to allow members and non-members alike to use OSM for mapping roads, buildings, and other structures for humanitarian purposes. Through my internship, I submitted a proposal for my own research topic involving the collection and analysis of cropland soil data. My methods included extracting soil quality data from the NRCS’s Soil Survey and collecting data directly from farming equipment in my hometown.
