Hi Everyone,

My name is Anthony Lee and I am a 3rd year student at Simon Fraser University. I am a Geography major but I am also doing certificate programs in GIS and Environmental Literacy. For the next 8 months, I will be away from campus for a co-op practicum. I will be working for TransLink (the region’s transportation authority) as a GIS technician for their asset management department. I have a feeling that I’m going to be doing a lot of heads up digitizing so that’s exciting.

I’m really interested in learning more about Python programming so that I can write scripts to automate tasks (which I’m hoping to get the hang of while I’m with TransLink). I’m also really interested in learning more about remote sensing (mostly because it can be applied in so many different industries in a variety of ways).

I look forward to reading everyone’s blog posts and I hope you all have a good semester!
