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 2021-Spring 2022)
Hello everyone, my name is Will Talbot (he/him), and I am a senior undergraduate at Clark majoring in geography (with a GIS track), minoring in philosophy, and planning on completing a concentration in Ethics and Public Policy. I am also planning on completing a 5th Year Accelerated Masters’ Program in Community Development and Planning (with an Environment and Development track) at Clark. I have completed GIS final projects on the 2016 Ranked Choice Voting Referendum in Maine, habitat for elephants in Southeast Asia, and (collaboratively) on solar facilities in Massachusetts and land change in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. I am involved in a lot of other clubs and activities on campus, including jazz workshop and combo, concert band, the Scarlet school newspaper, outing club, volleyball club, and intramural sports. I am passionate about using GIS tools in looking at current issues and helping envision socially responsible and environmentally sustainable solutions, and I look forward to helping you all with your GIS work!
