Eric Brelsford is a Brooklyn-based software developer focusing on mapping and data visualization. He is particularly interested in how maps affect the way we see and interact with cities, and how people can use maps to have an impact on their neighborhoods.
Eric got started with webmapping and community-driven data projects while working on a map of publicly-owned vacant land in NYC that also acts as an organizing tool (livinglotsnyc.org). He has worked on numerous similar projects since and is well-versed in open source GIS. Outside of mapping projects, he teaches GIS, Python, and webmapping part time at local universities.
