Don Iwanicka – Geospatial Contractor
In Episode 15, the final podcast of 2017, I am talking to Don Iwanicka. A geospatial professional and contractor in the Calgary area of Alberta, Canada. Don has about ten years of experience in geospatial technology focused on GIS and remote sensing. When Don is not learning new things in the industry or doing some type of coding in Python or data conversion in FME he is busy watching hockey and reading. We talk a little about projects, ArcGIS, GeoMedia and FME… which I have a bone to pick with right now 😉… as s well as Don’s thoughts on what new users should really get under their belt getting into the industry. I also get a little tongue tied and mispronounce a complete scientific field into a whole other field!! Who will be the first to figure it out?
With this being the last episode of 2017, I want to thank all those who have subscribed to the podcast. I hope it has been interesting to listen to and that you continue to listen in 2018. There has been a learning curve for sure and as I move forward the podcasts continue to improve. I also have to give a VERY BIG THANK YOU to all those folks who sat with me in these interviews and allowed me to ask the questions that we have all enjoyed listening to.
Speaking of Users, I am always looking for interesting stories… as in comics… your origin story and the great work being done by geospatial users out there. If you want to share your origin story and how you solve everyday problems, please contact me in the contact section of this site or by email: email@example.com .
