Internship Student Spotlight

GIS4944/5945, GIS Internship, Instructor, Mrs. Leah Lewis, GISP

GIS Internships - Let's get to work!


The following student was chosen to highlight their current GIS internship experience.  

Robyn Frelich

About Robyn: Robyn is an Urban Planner/GIS Analyst from around Tampa, FL and has happily been dabbling in GIS for several years. She works with her husband to provide GIS support to her unit, and uses GIS primarily for her job in transportation planning, making maps, and analyzing social economic data for future planning needs. What Robyn likes the most about GIS is how diverse it is and how many industries use it. It seems like no matter how familiar you are using it, you still find new things all the time. When asked if she considered herself to be more of a vector or a raster, she would have to consider herself a raster. Rasters seems pretty simple but can actually be pretty complicated. Each little piece means something, and has a value. Welcome to the Spotlight Robyn!

Check back next week for a new student spotlight!
