About Me:

I use remote sensing data to classify land cover concentrating on wetland delineation and classification.
GIS technology allows us to study wetland changes, presettlement vegetation, and urban growth, map state owed land from legal descriptions on deeds, and report T&E species location within IDOT project areas. I have also developed Microsoft Access databases for Illinois wetland and GAP data storage and am a member of the Illinois GIS Association.
