About MeI have 11 years of experience collecting, creating, and distributing geographic data in government. I currently work for the Metro Regional Government in Portland, Oregon. The things I write here at ProgrammableWeb are my own opinions and do not reflect the views of Metro. I have an interest in the way that government can make good things happen by opening data and adopting standards. My technical background includes GIS, Remote Sensing and Image Classification, large dataset visualization, spatial ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load), and web content curation. I consider myself to be a hacker more than a developer. I use languages like python and higher order APIs to get things done.
