Damn GIS

Sorry for the bluntness, but I’m in a cranker mood.

As a modern geographer, I must (not MUST, but really sorta must) learn GIS. I started my major as a GIScientist, but changed b/c I did NOT want to learn programming. Bleh.

I decided to do regular old Geography with a GIS Certificate (GIS coursework without the programming classes).


Took the intro class last semester, hated it. Taking the advanced class this semester, hate it. Will take the Capstone next semester, bet you 2 bucks I’ll hate it.

GIS offers great jobs (if you like sitting at a computer all day), good pay, almost guaranteed job placement, and fantastic job security. BUT I HATE IT!

I know most of you probably have no freaking clue what GIS is, and in my anger and annoyance I’m giving you the short stick and sending you here to learn about it if you please. The opening pic is an illustration of what we do with computers. It really is a really cool things but I hate relying on computers.

Give me some rapidographs and vellum and I’ll ink you a map all day long (and a damn good one at that) but sit me in front of a computer and tell me to do it and I’ll glare at you (then probably do it and HATE doing it the whole time).

So, love geography, HATE GIS. I feel I can’t emphasize that more.

I have an assignment to get back to. Poop.
