This week we’re taking a look at Jubal Harpster, who graduated with a B.A. from the Geography department in 1995. An interesting and dynamic guy who went through our GIS classes and has just recently started his own company, SpatialDev.
They just got back from WhereCamp Africa where they worked on mapping and technology issues. What an awesome way to make use of your geography degree!
Do you know of any other alumni doing interesting things that we should spotlight? Let us know in the comments!
Here’s an interview Jubal did about his experiences:
View SpatialDev’s mission statement after the break….
Here’s a look at their mission statement:
SpatialDev is a group of creative consultants supporting sustainable development through spatial technology. Formerly with CH2M HILL, the team broke off when that company divested its Enterprise Spatial Solutions practice. We help our clients by putting maps and location-aware databases in place to make their work more efficient and effective. We hold an agnostic view of the tools we employ, letting our clients’ requirements drive technology selection. Our goal is to deliver information systems that make sense for our clients and support their effort to make a difference.
Formed with a spirit of socially responsible and creative capitalism, SpatialDev works to cross-fertilize the more than 50 years of collective experience and innovation our team brings from a variety of sectors spanning urban planning to wireless network operation. Our client partners in this work include organizations doing international research for development, large international donors, and experts working on some of the world’s most difficult problems. We value open collaboration and enjoy working with other thinkers involved with information technologies.
