We began in the heart of the lower Columbia River basin of Oregon and Washington. We now help clients with agricultural operations in Arizona, Idaho, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. We also leverage a network of GIS professionals, remote sensing scientists and developers.
Will Anderson, MA
Will Anderson leverages 16 years experience building GIS and crop imaging programs, designing custom cloud-based farm GIS, and translating cutting-edge remote sensing technologies from drones and other aircraft into routine operational successes like this.
Will is a native of NE Oregon and has enjoyed settling back in his home region applying his skills to help improve and sustain the local agricultural industry, where he began his working life assisting IPM projects at OSU-HAREC in high school and with Hale Farms during his college summers.
He earned a BA from Washington State University's Honor College in 2000 (Summa cum laude), a Master’s in Education from the University of New England (Australia) in 2004, and a Master’s in Geography from San Diego State University in 2009, where he was a research and teaching assistant in the Department of Geography from 2007 to 2009 and assisted research projects focused on hydrology, conservation, and land management in Mexico and Ecuador.
Throughout 2010 he continued work in Ecuador providing GIS and aerial remote sensing support to two agricultural/land-management watershed conservation projects. From 2011 to 2013 he built and managed the GIS program for San Diego Canyonlands, a non-profit organization dedicated to watershed conservation in San Diego County before moving back to Oregon.

Sarah Anderson, PhD
Sarah Anderson's 20 years of GIS experience have a focused specialization in GIS, remote sensing imagery processing and analysis, and custom scripting to support analysis and web-based information systems.
Originally from Minnesota, Sarah Anderson (Wandersee) earned her PhD in Geography in 2013 from San Diego State University and the University of California, Santa Barbara. Sarah brings extensive expertise in spatial data analysis. Prior to beginning work full-time with Anderson Geographics in 2014, she was an adjunct research professor with the University of Alaska Anchorage, where she applied her survey and statistical modeling experience. Sarah received a BA in Geography (focusing on the geographic techniques of GIS and remote sensing) and American Indian Studies in 2006 from the University of Wisconsin. After graduation, she worked in Southern California as a GIS Technician with the Native American Environmental Protection Coalition. She also earned an MA in Environmental Security in 2008 from the United Nations Univ. for Peace.
Sarah has deep experience with a range of spatial and statistical software, has designed and conducted GIS and remote sensing analysis for publication, and is well-versed in data collection and management.
She has also developed and taught introductory and advanced university courses in geography and remote sensing, presented to a variety of audiences, facilitated training workshops, and written reports and successful grant proposals. Her various projects have focused on soil and land cover, water bodies, sensitive areas and vegetation.
