Damien Finkbeiner

GIS Technician

Damien was hired as part of Wightman’s GIS team in 2018 as a GIS technician, a role in which he is responsible for data management, control, and visualization for client projects. He works with clients to develop processes so that they can view and edit their data. He also trains them, as well as his fellow coworkers, on how to implement high-accuracy GPS devices to collect, update, and locate assets in the field. And, because GIS is important to the work done throughout Wightman, he assists internal departments with data management to complete projects.

Personal Note

Being from the Upper Peninsula I enjoy spending my free time hiking, mountain biking, camping, and generally exploring. I also like to do wood-burning/wood-working as a hobby and would like to incorporate that with my GIS skills in the future as an art form.
