Matt Hyde—2012 Fellow
Year: Class of 2013
Public Participation GIS in Community Development
As part of an organization called Envision Minnesota, I work on environmentally friendly community development and design for communities across the state.
My interests are traveling, community building and placemaking, and all outdoors activities. In the future, I plan to get my masters in GIS and continue in a career in Cartography and Spatial Analysis.
This fellowship has given me a great opportunity to pursue an experience that I never would have had otherwise. The ability to pick an organization and get paid for what I choose to do is something really incredible. Thank you very much for allowing me to pursue my true interests.
