Annalise Erkkinen (GISDE '2011)

Annalise Erkkinen (USA) began a career in international development consulting at Chemonics International with the intention of learning how GIS was applied in practice. She feels that very few development projects are even using GIS and most projects don’t incorporate any data analysis techniques to design, develop, or implement their work. She is sure that there is great potential for using GIS to do all this immediately.
