    Hey guys, I did this for a final project in my GIS class. Basically, it's assessing Methow River subbasins on a couple important habitat criteria.

    Thanks guys! The full report on the website has a lot of "interesting" data too. Also I'm looking for a GIS job in the region so if any of you know of any opportunities I would love to hear about them. Thanks,

  9. Very cool. Nice to see fellow GIS people on this site as well. Nicely made maps and analysis. I hope you are able to pass the data onto group that could use it for restoration purposes.

    I took them as part of a GIS minor at WWU but I know UW has a program as well. Prerequisites are some basic stats classes, map reading classes and geography classes.
     
  15. UW has a certificate program as well as a masters program. Green River Community College has an certificate and associates degree available. I am not sure what schools on the east side of the state offer GIS but I assume WSU has some kind of program in place.
     
  16. WSU does have a set of GIS courses

  19. Yeah they do. I'm actually enrolled in it right now. Penn State and USC also
    have masters programs that cover GIS.

    Unfortunately, I had to sell out and get a job outside of the Fisheries. Still keeping my eye for GIS jobs relating to fish habitat though.
