New Jersey Department of

Environmental Protection,

Bureau of GIS





GIS Analyst

Trenton, NJ

January 2017 to Present

My work at the Bureau focuses on web map applications and data development, for use by the NJDEP, other state agencies, and the general public.


I developed this online application  in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, to showcase the NJDEP's Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) program. A SEP is an environmentally beneficial project that a respondent voluntarily agrees to perform, as a condition of settling an enforcement action.

This application was designed to let the user search for proposed and completed SEPs, as well as municipalities and watershed management areas (WMAs). It also allows the use of multiple base maps.

BGIS Story Map

The Story Map concept was developed by Earth Sciences Research Institute (ESRI) a pioneer and innovator in GIS technology, and vendor for all GIS programs at the NJDEP. This Story Map, developed by BGIS, combines online mapping applications with narrative text and imagery to “tell the story” of the bureau’s varied and vital work.

Each tab in the Story Map includes a representative image of an application, with a description of how it works. To view or interact with the “live” application, click the link provided.


Some of the online mapping application developed fully or in part by the BGIS have been incorporated into this Story Map.

Cached Data Layers

Caching, also known as tile packaging, allows published maps (such as those found on ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Portal and DEP Explorer) to run faster. When a cache is created, the application can draw the entire map at several different scales and can store copies of the map images; it draws at more than one scale, allowing the user to zoom in and out of the map quickly.


I have created three large-scale data caches for the BGIS (Land Cover, Parcels, and Streams), as well as a standard operating procedure (SOP) manual for the caching process.
