Nathan Haddon has thirteen years experience implementing GIS into local, state, federal, and Department of Defense (DoD) government entities and developing and utilizing tools to derive geospatial and imagery analysis. He began his career in imagery collection management and tasking, ortho-rectifying airborne imagery, creating terrain models, analyzing soils and land use, and feature extraction for municipal tax mapping projects. This experience gained Nathan an understanding of map projections, ground point accuracy, and working with vendors and clients to create a turn key GIS for the client.
After 2 years of developing fundamental geospatial and GIS skillsets, Nathan was promoted to team lead of 5 employees in which he created and implemented quality control procedures, tracked project efficiency, and worked with clients to customize tools that were integrated into mapping software packages.
Nathan continued to work as a team lead for several years further developing his career experience as a lead on projects and communicating with clients to develop applications and programs. As a move to expand his career he applied to a DoD agency and was accepted. Within a year Nathan was promoted to a Senior Geospatial Analyst and team lead for over 20 employees. His time at the agency has been spent developing innovative ways to present and analyze geospatial data, creating time-dominate geospatial products, and briefing high level officials including agency directors, office directors, and division level directors. Nathan also has briefed several other agency teams on web based mapping applications that he has developed. His products have been disseminated to multiple agencies and globally to support many missions.
Nathan is highly qualified for any GIS-related job and has earned awards from both the DoD agency and from his companies for the work that he has done. He is highly trained in working in a team environment that includes collaboration across multiple branches and agencies. His core understanding of GIS and mental aptitude affords him the ability to adapt to many different scenarios and implement GIS into various lines of work including but not limited to government, utilities, oil and gas exploration, emergency management systems, real estate, satellite positioning systems, environmental, biological, and many more.
