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.

Favorite Species:
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.
