Belgium, Canada, and Haiti—GIS Instructors Have the Power!

Denis Roose
Denis Roose
Denis Roose, founder of Edgetech America, Inc., a Business Partner and GIS training, analysis, and programming service based in Glen Allen, Virginia, is seen visiting his hometown of Brussels, Belgium. He is standing next to the statue of Gerardus Mercator (1512–1594), the famous Belgian geographer, cartographer, and mathematician who gave the world the Mercator coordinate system and coined the term atlas as a collection of maps. The Mercator projection has been more widely used than any other projection for navigators' world maps. Denis seems pleased. Perhaps that's because he is wearing his 2005 Esri Business Partner T-shirt!

Margaret Chernosky, a geography teacher at Bangor High School in Bangor, Maine, tells us she was raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, with a highland heart! When she made a nostalgic visit to Nova Scotia recently, she didn't forget her Esri T-shirt, we are happy to see.

Steve Obenhaus, Olathe North High School in Olathe, Kansas, is a high school math teacher who teaches GIS to upper-level students. He tells us, "We have a joint project with a Haitian health center to test the drinking water in the center's service area and send back reports, including maps, of the sources and their quality for use in determining possible new well sites. I am shown here testing a hand-dug well in a small cluster of thatch homes near Jorgue, Haiti." The climate looks to be perfect for wearing his Esri T-shirt!

Jon Chapman, stewardship and monitoring coordinator for the Maryland Environmental Trust, a statewide land trust, is showing off his Esri T-shirt while standing by the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. His family visited Zion, Bryce Canyon, the North and South Rims, Lake Powell/Glen Canyon, and Sedona on the trip. Jon says, "My eldest son said he'd had enough 'canyoney goodness' after just a couple of days, but I'm sure he'll appreciate it all in time."
