Joseph Géigel

GIS Analyst

Using geographic information systems (GIS), I produce maps, tables, figures, and other visualizations that portray geospatial information; and conduct geographic data analysis to answer questions about almost anything that occurs in space. I have been drawn to geography and cartography since my great-grandfather sat and read a world atlas with me for endless hours when I was a child. When I’m not working, I like to explore the Pacific Northwest, read a book, or just have a cup of coffee and relax.

Quiscalus niger brachypterus, the Greater Antillean Grackle. This beautiful little black bird is very common in the coastal lowlands of Puerto Rico, and it reminds me of home.
