As of January 2017, we're no longer taking on new projects under the Geocology Research banner. But don't worry! Hugh and Adam are still busy helping organizations with geo and coding stuff. Get in touch:
Geocology provides spatial informatics and geodesign capacity to environmental and community organizations that don't have it in-house.
We combine technical skills like GIS, database, and coding with experience in communications and science.
Our goal is to become a shared resource of best practices and repeatable experience that Vancouver and coastal area organizations can collectively draw on.
Hugh started out studying spatial ecology, which led to remote sensing, environmental informatics, complex systems theory, and human geography at various labs in California, Virginia and Michigan. Ontario was home, now it's East Vancouver.
Hugh has been building things with code since grade 5, and has lately been working on web platforms and crafting interactive maps and online interfaces.
Hugh used to like motorcycles and deserts but now likes camper vans and fjords. He has planted over a million trees by hand. True fact.
Adam originally hails from Northern British Columbia but now spends most of his time in Vancouver. He is fluent in French and Spanish but his Pig Latin is rusty.
His academic background is in Geography, Computer Science, and GIS.
For work, Adam loves writing programs, especially ones that are geospatial-related. For fun, Adam enjoys sampling hot sauces of the world in search of the hottest sauce on the planet. So far he has managed to keep a few taste buds intact.
But it sure would be nice to get back out into the field one of these days.
