Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst: A Geographic Information System, or GIS, is a system that collects, stores, manages, and presents information that is linked to a specific place on Earth. As a GIS Analyst, I work with geographic information to help solve problems. My favorite science experience has been collecting vegetation information in the Western United States for a project addressing forest fires. I was on a 6-month internship with the Student Conservation Association (SCA). During that time, I identified plant species in wilderness locations to improve our identification of these species using satellite data.
