We are excited to welcome our newest team member, Alicia Tyson!
Alicia joins the NPMap team as a data manager. Alicia loves data – particularly geospatial data. Her primary duty will be working hand-in-hand with our partners to massage data and build out databases and services that feed National Park Service apps.
Alicia recently received her Masters of Science degree from the University of Denver, where her research focused on GIS modeling of landslides and risk perception in Machu Piccu, Pueblo, Peru. She also interned in the Park Service's National GIS Office for the past year, gaining valuable experience in the realm of Enterprise GIS.
When asked about what she is looking forward to in regards to this new position, Alicia replied, “I just want to help protect, preserve, conserve and otherwise celebrate this beautiful natural world we find ourselves in. I look forward to learning from and with the NPMap team and exploring and pushing as many frontiers as we can!”
