What makes you a geonerd?

Amber is researching how the advancing digital age impacts the way people engage with maps. More specifically, this fall she will interact with groups of differing incomes and digital connectivity to observe the ways they read and interpret different representations of the same map. Extending her interest for maps into her spare time, Amber is a freelance cartographer. She has made maps for purposes ranging from historical tourism plaques and books to political campaigns.


I'm a Summer 2014 Geography Intern who works with FieldScope and GIS in the National Geographic Education Programs Division. Originally from Minnesota, I am pursuing an M.S. in Geosciences at Georgia State University.
