Nick Bumbarger is joining the Development Seed team! Nick will expand our satellite imagery and remote sensing work. He will improve tools like landsat-util and create new analytical tools that make it easier to process satellite data and draw meaningful insights into global development challenges. We are excited to have Nick helping us to build the future of open geographic science for global development.
As a scientist, Nick uses complex geospatial data to solve complex questions. Nick comes to Development Seed from the aerospace and defense industries where he deployed large scale imagery and mapping projects. Recently, Nick is experimenting with Lego Mindstroms bricks to build a personal robot. Nick has a Bachelor’s degree in Geography and a Master’s degree in Geographic Information Science from Clark University. Give him shout on github and twitter.
