About Caitlin Dempsey
Caitlin learned the tricks of the GIS trade as an intern for the National Park Service headquartered in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Before moving to municipal GIS she was a GIS analyst for a natural resource agency located in Topanga, California. In addition to her work with GIS Lounge, Caitlin Dempsey is the owner of DM Geographics, LLC, a consulting firm.
Caitlin earned her master’s degree in biogeography from UCLA. She spent her last year sidestepping rattlesnakes (well, one at least) in an effort to look at the effects of hiking trails on native vegetation in the Santa Monica Mountains.
From Caitlin Dempsey:
“GIS is a powerful tool to help record, analyze and map spatial data. I’m here to help you learn more about GIS and how to use its amazing applications to benefit your work. GIS isn’t just for geographers, it’s for everyone.”
