Jason’s primary work at the IWR has been the development of online GIS applications, such as the Mid-Michigan Health Impact Assessment Tool, the Michigan Sensitive Areas Identification System and the Michigan EnviroImpact tool to help ensure sustainable decision-making at local and regional levels. He also has worked on the development of the Great Lakes Clean Communities Network and conducted hydrologic modeling in southwestern Michigan using the USGS’s AFINCH model. He completed both his B.S. in Geographic Information Science (2011) and M.S. in Geographic Information Science (2014) at Michigan State University. When not thinking about GIS applications, Jason enjoys cycling, reading, and fishing.
