Our revitalized geospatial webcast and blog that has been dormant in the last year has come alive again with new content coming soon. Wondering what the geospatial community is all about? Ask us some questions and we can go over it in our next webcast.
#Projectgeo #GIS #GEOINT #Geospatial
 
We finished creating a new professional front-end website for everyone to checkout. Google+ will always be our place for interaction with the community and sharing new content but the new site has allowed us to create our own experience around Project Geospatial news, webcasts, and in-depth blog posts about industry topics.

Check us out and let us know what you think. We want your feedback on what questions you want to know about the industry and if you have something to share we would love to have you on a webcast as we get those running again too. Thanks everyone for your continued support.

I noticed my Xbox Game library has an interesting coincidental arrangement to make Gerald from Witcher appear that he has mechanical legs from Titanfall.

When Landsat 8 imagery was made available on Amazon AWS our first question was: ‘how easy will it be to view it in Google Earth?’. This is our experience trying to answer that question.

When Landsat 8 imagery was made available on Amazon AWS our first question was: ‘how easy will it be to view it in Google Earth?’. This is our experience trying to answer that question. The Landsat 8 satellite has a number of different cameras that capture imagery in different wavelengths. For details of the various …

Why would it not be. It's easier for russians to spy at that time due to the nature of the US.

Awesome House Truck that transforms. An interesting perspective on the #tinyhouse phenomenon. Thanks for sharing +Andrea Simmons​
Justin and Jola Siezen live on the road, so they converted an old truck into a unique mobile home. Their masterpiece actually transforms into a medieval castle at the press of a button.

So I've used Google Domains for awhile now and love the simplicity of the interface. Beyond that I hadn't really used it much beyond domain forwarding and email forwarding. My only gripe is that I wish I can assign some additionally web admins besides myself to have access to the domain settings for my site. Overlooking that item the service is amazingly easy to use and even more so after I setup a SquareSpace page recently and discovered how easy it was to link a Google Domain to my SquareSpace site. All it did was ask which URL, then perform a Google Authentication Check and I was setup. Literally 5 seconds without messing with any DNS settings. That alone made my switch from GoDaddy worth it.

Mapping Worldwide Flights

Visualizing worldwide flights and flight patterns.
Airborne is a WebGL globe visualization of worldwide flights. The visualization includes controls to adjust the size of the plane sprite size and the opacity of the flight paths. The globe provides a great visualization of worldwide flight patterns.

Well I still cringe at the rebranding from Foursquare to Swarm last year when they separated their check-in service but I'm glad they brought Mayorships back. Makes using the app fun again. #Foursquare #Swarm #Checkin

Exactly, it was one of those things that looking back they will hopefully realize that it was a mistake.

  • BAE Systems
    Analyst, 2014 - 2015
  • USAF - Reserves - PACOM JIOC
    Geospatial Analyst, 2012 - 2013
    I served part time as a Geospatial Analyst in the Air Force Reserves exploiting Satellite Imagery maintaining my knowledge of the Intelligence trade-craft for a year.
  • DigitalGlobe
    Business Analyst, 2013 - 2013
    As GeoEye merged with DigitalGlobe my role with the newly combined company had been remained the same. Between managing Outreach User Engagement alongside the USGIF to maintaining support with analytics expertise for multiple departments internally my job entailed ensuring the voice of the end user is heard and making sure products are evolving to improve the workflow of the customer while ensuring the products are profitable through usage.
  • GeoEye
    Business Analyst, 2012 - 2013
    After separating with the Air Force I landed a job at GeoEye. Building off my expertise from the Air Force by primary tasks were building Outreach Efforts to product users by working with the Government program office on outreach activities and the USGIF. This helped increase the adoption of the EnhancedView Web Hosting Service (EV WHS) within the defense/intelligence community. In addition I contribute to the evolving strategy for imagery dissemination through Google services such as Maps Engine and other commercial technologies. My outreach efforts are also internal as I worked with the embedded analyst teams within the GeoEye Analytics Department to ensure that they have access to imagery and other geospatial assets vital to satisfying their mission objectives with our customers.
  • USAF - Military - Pentagon
    Geospatial Analyst, 2010 - 2012
    At this point my in the Air Force I had the honor in transferring to the Pentagon working for Headquarters Air Force A2Z Office which is responsible for ISR Special Programs. While stationed here I acted as a AF liaison to National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) in which I had the honor in presenting my work to Director of NRO, USAF Special Programs Director, and 2 USDI staff members. I then transitioned to being the AF liaison to National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Geospatial Visualization Services (NGA GVS) spearheading user-engagement, training, and social media advertising on classified networks. I had already been working with the GVS team for 4 years at this point from building Google Earth best practices at Beale AFB. Another role I had was being the Geospatial SME for Air Force Crisis Action Team. It was a pleasure working at the Pentagon as I had the honor in working alongside Senior Executives in developing national level geospatial requirements and strategies involving interactions with members of multiple agencies and organization.
  • USAF - Military - Beale AFB
    Geospatial Tactician, 2007 - 2010
    As I still maintained my currency as an Imagery Analyst on the different Airborne platforms my role transitioned into improving the current mission operations by working in the Weapons and Tactics Office. My natural talent as an innovator combined with support from my leadership allowed me to revolutionize GEOINT tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the DCGS weapons system. My work gave me direct interaction with other areas of Intelligence Operations including All Source Analysis and SIGINT broadening my overall expertise. By rapidly moving the DCGS Community into cloud based reporting and dissemination I seeded the curation of modern Intelligence Collaboration through the creation of a massive Sharepoint Network, The Joint Intelligence Google Earth Working Group user community, and significantly increased awareness in Analysts of programs across the intelligence community by using early Social Media best practices.
  • USAF - Military - Beale AFB
    Imagery Analyst, 2005 - 2007
    While stations at Beale AFB my first job started out primarily as an Imagery Analyst. My role involved analyzing, distributing, and reviewing imagery derived products from the Global Hawk, U-2, and Predator ISR platforms to the war fighter and strategic partners. I gained extensive foundation experience in EO, IR, RADAR, Multi-spectral, MASINT, FMV, and GMTI.

Introduction
I have a passion for Geospatial technology. I love  engaging with users for engineers and designing strategies for the future of the geospatial community.     

After spending 7 years in the Air Force I am excited to see what the world has to offer on the civilian side. I am very enthusiastic about technology especially with focus on the Geospatial Industry.

I have begun my own Google+ HangoutsOnAir series called Project Geo. Check it out the page here and watch the our show.

We chose National Bank of Kansas because it had some of the best rates in the country and they were recommended to us by those who had a good experience with them in the past. Glen Coger was our loan officer and was very helpful throughout the our loan process locking us in a great rate. Patience was another attribute of the representatives as the loan process can be stressful for all parties involved Glen responded to tense situation between parties in a calm demeanor. As this was our first time buying a home, keep in mind that they are very thorough throughout the loan process with all requested documents and the best thing you can do is to ensure you are highly proactive in responding to requesting information to help the process to completion. Beyond that be patient and keep the communication lines open.

Its been years since I've been to a Red Lobster and this was a good experience. The server was very attentive but not too annoying in that they visited the table too much. The food was good but everything I had was very butter. I might rather have the butter sauce on the side next time. The menu had a wide assortment of full dishes.
