    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,

    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.

    Very cool deal! Great use of your skills in combination with a passion for the fish. Good read, bookmarked. I also enjoy the well cited sources, stuff to read or re-read in the future!

    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.

    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.

    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.
