Brian M. Coleman

Currently, I have two focuses in GIS.

                Teaching at FRCC – I have served on the GIS Steering Committee for several years.  FRCC/Boulder County Campus has garnered several awards, including best academic program at any Colorado Community College in 2012 and a SAG Award from Esri in 2014.  My focus has been with GPS Field Data Collection, which is taught in the summer as a hands on, project focused course.

                Developing UAV platforms for Geospatial use – I am also with Juniper Unmanned Aerial Systems where I am responsible for developing geospatial uses for UAV.  My title is Flight Operations Manager and I work to integrate UAV into full compliance with FAA regulations.  My team is working to confirm best practices based for various geospatial applications by matching platforms to sensors and mission plans. 

                My vision for GISCO is to find a way to expose more high school and college students to the benefits of acquiring a GIS skill set, no matter what your academic pursuits might be. 

                I have been an active member of past GISCO boards, while still employed by Esri.   I also used my GISCO board position as a platform for the formation of WyGEO, which functions like GISCO in the state of Wyoming.
