Intro

As a Digital Cartographer I work in a variety of industries since Geographic Information Systems is such a vast field, albeit conservation speaks particularly to my values.
Through my enthusiasm for the outdoors, I have found my passion for environmental as well as data sciences. I am driven by the power of aesthetics, conservation, environmental, and scientific goals.

As a geographer at heart, conservation is at the core of my values. I think a lot about sustainability and how I can contribute to reducing my carbon footprint. I want to centre my work around furthering projects for sustainability, particularly for conservation, reducing biodiversity loss, mitigating climate change, and increasing renewables.

Work

"The secret to climbing up is to put your heart into your work." - Jeffrey Gitomer

As a Digital Cartographer, I combine GIS Analysis with Map Design. View a selection of some of my favourite map designs I have created in my map & image gallery.

I use GIS to illuminate a variety of issues by revealing geographic patterns and applying cartographic design principles. This is valuable in gaining actionable intelligence from publicly available geodata sets. In my work I seek solutions for sustainable development goals using spatial analysis to evaluate suitability and capability, lending new perspectives for informed decision-making. I have equipped myself with advanced cartographic design techniques and a deeper understanding of wildlife, biodiversity, and habitat mapping.

Design-driven data visualisation has become a vital part in my work, find out about my cartographic approach here and stay tuned for my upcoming tableau dashboards in the coming months!

My profession, skills, and potential are a valuable asset to your organisation as I am a Geographer, GIS Analyst, and Map Designer. I have also expanded my practices into Marketing where I exercise creative thinking, my versatility in digital design, my skills in content writing, along with seeing the big picture as I make a point of connecting business development with marketing, networking, science, and technology. I am driven by the power of aesthetics, conservation, environmental, and scientific goals.

Maps

“Maps are like campfires — everyone gathers around them, because they allow people to understand complex issues at a glance and find agreement about how to help the land.”
- Sonoma Ecology Center

About

Whenever my family and friends hear the quote “Geographers never get lost. They just do accidental field work.“ by Nicholas Chrisman, they blurt out “So, Sarah spends 80% of her time doing field work?!” All I can say to that is, not every cartographer has a great sense of direction…

Find out more about my international experiences through this whimsical interactive story map which will give you insights to countries in which I have lived, worked, and travelled.

I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the United States. However, I spent more time in Colorado and Wyoming than anywhere else in the United States. I grew up mostly in Regensburg, Germany with a quick two-year detour in a small French town close to Geneva. After graduating from high school, I chose the farthest place away from my school to spend a year in a country that is just way too hot - Australia.

Once I came back from my walkabout, I got a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geography and Regional Research with a focus in GIS at the University of Vienna, Austria. As history repeats itself, and I prefer cooler climates, I chose to move to another country after graduation - Scotland. I love Edinburgh and I love Scotland. My new home is everything and more. Nothing – except for COVID-19 and limited vehicle access – can keep me from taking my tent and my partner's warm sleeping bag to go up into the Highlands and camp away.
