Our featured panelists: Lisa Berry, John Nelson, and Cooper Thomas


Lisa is a cartographer, data scientist, and all-around map nerd. With a focus on mapping demographic patterns, she mostly works with data from the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2018, she automated American Community Survey (ACS) demographic data into ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World so that the GIS community could quickly and easily map issues related to public policy. She uses demographic data to help identify the needs of different communities, and this method of policy mapping allows decision-makers to find opportunities to intervene.

Global Air Quality: Exploring 19 years of particulate matter in the air we breathe

John Nelson is a map maker, software experience designer, and writer at Esri. He works with the Living Atlas team, creating geographic data, web experiences, moderately-educational blogs, and mildly-instructional videos. He works in a small woodshed in Michigan and relishes the opportunity to chat with other map folks.

Cooper is a cartographer and product designer on Esri’s StoryMaps team. A man of many hats—figuratively and literally—Cooper spends his days (and sometimes nights) creating static and interactive maps, producing mapping resources, and contributing to the UI/UX design of ArcGIS StoryMaps. His maps have found their way onto the @Esrigram Instagram feed, the front page of Reddit, and his mom’s fridge. In his spare time, Cooper enjoys tinkering with his synthesizers to create otherworldly soundscapes, reading about socialist modernist architecture, pioneering new kombucha cocktails, and playing Mozart to his houseplants so that they someday grow tall and strong.
