Nienke is a Geographic Information Systems specialist with over 16 years experience of applying GIS to environmental, land and water management. She has worked on a diverse range of projects both in the private and public sector, involving (geo) database development, spatial analyses, web-mapping, map production and GIS support and training.
Nienke was contracted by Kent County Council as GIS officer on a 3 year European funded project (Interreg IV: ARCH) assessing changing landcover and habitats in Kent and developing tools for Planning. With a large amount of data, new methodologies to establish, and participants all using GIS, this has proved a varied and interesting challenge.
Prior to working with Kent County Council, Nienke was employed in the private sector contributing to water resources projects (watershed management plans, flood risk assessment) and developing GIS for coastal zone management, engineering and environmental projects.
During a 4 year posting in the USA, her focus shifted towards GIS for stormwater and asset management projects and peer review, project evaluation and tender preparation. Prior to gaining a Masters in GIS Nienke worked for several years in the Eastern Caribbean as a team leader, gaining experience with data management techniques, data capture and hydrological/meteorological network management.
