Miskowiak takes on new challanges with UWSP GIS Center

Doug Miskowiak recently took on a new set of challenges as a GIS Education Specialist at the UW-Stevens Point GIS Center.  In this new role, he will be teaching a GIS fundamentals course, conducting GIS research, and developing a Professional GIS Certificate Program.  The new GIS Center is housed in the Department of Geography/Geology in the College of Letters and Sciences at UWSP.  The Center looks to fill the demand for a growing Geospatial workforce by providing GIS education/training for traditional and non-traditional students. 

Doug was formerly with the UWSP Center for Land Use Education for about 6-years as an Outreach Specialist.  He conducted land use and GIS education/research state-wide.  While there he worked with local Wisconsin communities fostering GIS for innovative decision-making, public participation, plan development, implementation, and monitoring.
