Erich Seamon

Hi – my name is Erich Seamon.   I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Idaho, working on machine learning techniques and their applications to agriculture and climate, under Dr. Paul Gessler.  I have extensive experience in data science, GIS, and climate science impacts, and am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP)  as well as a Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP).

Climate Science Background and Experience

Below is a synopsis of several different climate science projects I have worked on over the past 10 years @ the University of Idaho.  I have particular experience…

GIS Background and Experience

I have a background in geographic information systems (GIS), using ArcGIS desktop, ArcGIS server, python, R, as well as managing spatial data within several flavors of databases (SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, MongoDB). I regularly deploy GIS-based web services, manage geodatabases, and use modeling efforts to understand spatial patterns and relationships.
