Welcome to my homepage. I’m a Professor in the GIS Program at Vancouver Island University. I also teach courses at Johns Hopkins University, Elmhurst College and Simon Fraser University.

In January 2013 my book Python Scripting for ArcGIS was released by Esri Press. ISBN-10: 1589482824. More details about the book can be found at the Esri Press page of the book, as well as on the Python Book tab of this website.

The book was recently reviewed by the VerySpatial blog.
