University of North GeorgiaGainesville, GAGIS Research Analyst08/2017 to 05/2018
Conducted undergraduate research which included comparing the soil moisture (SMAP data) of Houston, Texas both prior and post Hurricane Harvey in order to create a Flood Potential model in ArcGIS for Desktop 10.5 (ESRI, Redlands, CA).
SMAP data (Soil Moisture Active Passive) data was collected via satellite that measures the amount of water in the top 5 centimeters of soil on Earth's surface.
Having completed the creation of the Flood Potential Model used in the analysis for soil moisture prior to and following Hurricane Harvey, I then related my results of the
flood potential analysis to the massive amounts of regional flooding that occurred in the Houston area following Harvey.
Lastly, I used the Floor Potential Model for the state of Georgia and updated it, also using SMAP data for the state of Georgia.

Title: How to Improve the QA/QC Process with ArcGIS Data Reviewer
Abstract: In water utilities, GIS data quality and accuracy can mean the success or failure of many different scenarios: repairs occurring quickly and efficiently, customers receiving boil water notices, or even simply being able to identify customer locations.
ArcGIS Data Reviewer gives Clay County Utility Authority the ability to ensure that our data not only geometrically exists as it should, but that it is attributed correctly.
Data Reviewer sets data quality to a standard of utmost dependability.

Re: To prolong the life and reliability of its fire hydrants, Clay County Utility Authority flushes over 3,500 hydrants each year.
Averaging 30 minutes per ticket, they saw the opportunity to realize significant savings in costs and time.
Getting creative with Cartegraph automations, they're completing these inspections in four months instead of eight-saving an estimated $110,000 annually by automatically creating maintenance tasks based on deficiency and deactivating out-of-service hydrants in their ArcGIS database.
