– It All Starts Here


Amythest Lee

Columbia, MD, USA

I have taken GIS classes in undergrad and graduate school. I have created shapefiles and converted data I have collected into a format compatible with ArcGIS. I also created visual depictions of sea level rise and its impact to Wilmington, North Carolina by finding already existing shapefiles in various databases. I completed projects involving sand displacement from hurricanes and dune erosion from Beach Vitex. I am a fast learner that is highly motivated to solve problems and complete projects.
