Kat Zimmerman 2016

The views of Mt. Hood and the Cascade Mountains from a cross-country flight in 1996 sparked my desire to create maps. You could say map making was in my bones since birth. My grandfather was a surveyor. My father always had a topo map on him and taught me how to read them. From my earliest memories, I have been fascinated with navigation, maps, and data. My attention to detail and problem-solving skills make the process of combining data into useful images a joy.

I am earth focused, having studied Geology, Landscape Architecture, and most recently Geographic Information Systems (GIS)/Cartography/Geography. Contour lines make me giddy and I enjoy creating maps “that people want to look at.”
