Each year the Geography department hires students to staff our GIS Help Desk; a departmental resource that provides free, one-on-one tutoring and guidance to students seeking assistance in GIS programs and applications. The GIS Help Desk is currently offering help via Zoom and in-person in Jefferson office 221.
GIS Help Desk hours follow a University schedule. If the University is closed (or if the Geography office is closed), the GIS Help Desk may be unavailable. Hours may be limited or extended during midterms/final exams. GIS Help Desk Assistants operate on a first-come, first-serve basis during posted hours.
Contact us with any questions, or call the Geography Main Office at 1-508-793-7336 for more information. The GIS Help Desk is sponsored by the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University.
GIS Support Assistants (Fall 2022-Spring 2023)
Hi all! My name is Apple Gould-Schultz (she/her) and I am a senior majoring in Environmental Science (Earth Systems Science track) and minoring in Biology. I will be completing a 5th-year Accelerated Masters’ in GIS graduating in 2024. I was a HERO fellow in the summer of 2021 and have been managing the program since. I love using my GIS skills on environmental issues and am so excited to be working with y’all.
Hello everyone! My name is David (he/him), and I am a GIS master’s student in the 5th year program here at Clark. Last May, I graduated with my B.A. in Environmental Science (ESS track) with a minor in Geography. I have over three years of experience in GIS at Clark. My research interest involves using historical maps and aerial imagery to find patterns in urban ecological issues. This past year, I mapped urban tree canopy change in a neighborhood in Worcester from the 1950s to present day using a historical aerial photograph. I am very excited to work with all of you this year!
