UWF Student Has Map Featured for Thousands by ESRI's President

UWF MS in GIS Administration Student has Work Featured During ESRI's Users Conference

University of West Florida Master's of Science in Geographic Information Sciences online student Amanda Clayton's map was featured during the 2021 ESRI User Conference in San Diego. Jack Dangermond, President of ESRI, showcased Clayton's map on "European Wine Consumption" during the Plenary Session. The ESRI UC is a showcase of all things related to geographic information science and GIS professionals from all over the globe, with more than 50,000 people attending the annual conference. The conference runs from July 12-15.

Clayton created the "European Wine Consumption" map while enrolled in UWF's online Computer Cartography course. "It is crazy how far my GIS skills have come in the last two years," said Clayton. "UWF offers a top-notch program in MS GIS Administration."

Clayton worked at the university as a graduate assistant on several projects, including a Marine Science mapping project for Washington Hight School (funded by Gulf Power's Amplify Grant) and work with UWF's Alumni Relationtions and Development Office. Clayton recently accepted a full-time internship with ESRI in their Professional Services Division. 

Everyone at UWF's Earth and Environmental Sciences Department is extremely proud of Amanda and wants to congratulate her for this big achievement!
