Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees 365 days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

This course will show how GIS is being used to collect, store, and organize the locations of underground utilities, along with the valuable data associated with those utilities. We will explore how we can get this important, historical data into GIS so that it can be viewed in an online web viewer. Imagine having to deal with an emergency water main break. Rather than combing through drawers of paper plans, you can simply pull up the details of your water system on any computer or device with Internet access. Other ideas about how GIS is being used by surveyors will also be presented. This course will get you thinking about how GIS should be viewed as another tool in the toolbox: an investment that pays for itself through increased efficiency. In this digital age, we must accept that the abundance of data needs to be effectively managed, organized and shared.

Christine Gayron is President of Gayron de Bruin Land Surveying and Engineering. She began her career in the civil engineering industry in 2000 after completing a BS in Geology at City University of New York – Queens College. She started as a technician and design engineer working on utility design projects for public and private clients. Christine became a project manager in 2002, and gained extensive experience performing high accuracy surveying and mapping. She became a Licensed Land Surveyor in 2010, and partnered with Greg de Bruin to form Gayron de Bruin (GdB). She has presented PDH technical lectures on general surveying and LiDAR. GdB has been featured in POB Magazine as one of the Top 100 Geospatial Firms in the United States. Christine has been recognized in xyHt Magazine as one of “40 under 40” noteworthy geospatial professionals worldwide.

Christine is a member of the New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS) and serves as its Young Professionals Committee chairperson. She also serves as the New York State delegate to the Young Professionals Network of the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS). She is also the Vice President of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) – Long Island Branch.

Christine would like to close the gap between engineering and geomatics and promote innovation within the civil engineering industry. She finds it important to blend conventional methods with high tech equipment such as GIS and software including GIS to successfully and efficiently execute design projects. She also recognizes the importance of mentoring students and broadening the awareness of civil engineering and land surveying to the next generation. Christine has served as a speaker/panelist for State University of New York - Stony Brook student organizations, and has participated in mentoring programs at professional conferences. She has also presented and administered the Trigstar math contest to high school students, and she regularly hires student interns to expose them to the industry.
