Information Retrieval


  • As CTO at MetaCarta, I helped a brilliant team launch openlayers.org and love mapping technologies of all kinds.
  • Drone-based mapping is revolutionizing our understanding of Earth, and I'm interested in using drones to automatically survey wetlands. I recently passed the FAA's Part 107 test for flying "small Unmanned Aircraft Systems" (sUAS).

Amateur Radio

  • I'm a ham radio operator with Amateur Extra class license, call sign N9WLY. My satellite station uses LEO Pack dual Yagis with a Yaesu G5500 Az/El rotor, which is a hoot to watch pointing around on the roof. My HF station is now up and running to explore skywave HF communications via the upper atmosphere.
