40 Under 40, 2017: Remarkable Geospatial Professionals

This entry is part of 41 in the series 40 Under 40, 2017

In this annual issue focused on the future, we offer 40 under 40: a collection of profiles of motivated and noteworthy geospatial professionals under 40 years of age.

It is our wish that these profiles honor those who work tirelessly to promote geospatial fields and provide inspiration for young people considering entering related careers.

First, a roundup of honorable mentions. With only forty places to fill on the main list, there’s guaranteed to be gold in the overspill. Here’s some of it:

40 under 40 2017 honorable mentions

This was not a competition; we were not seeking candidates with the most academic credentials or business accomplishments. We sought a broad, international representation of the many geospatial fields that our publication covers: those who are doing significant work, often un-heralded, in positions that contribute to the current and future state of geospatial sciences, professions, and industries. This includes those who develop, service, and support the seemingly magical solutions we employ every day: those people who make your geo-world tick.

In addition to nominations, we selected candidates we met in the course of research for our editorial content. Unsurprisingly, many of these candidates were also nominated by multiple parties.
