Thomas Fish

Class of 2015


Thomas Fish is a Junior Anthropology and Philosophy double major from Pittsburgh, PA. He has worked for GIS since his freshman year and has been involved in projects in a wide variety of areas. In 2011 and 2012, he managed the impervious surfaces portion of the comprehensive mapping of the Tanyard Branch Watershed, created a risk terrain analysis of pivot irrigation systems throughout the state of Maryland and developed methods of analyzing data with both geospatial and temporal information using GeoTime. In addition, he helped fill time sensitive requests from the Maryland Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention and law enforcement agencies. In 2013, he assisted with the mapping of all of the places of worship in Maryland, headed up a tree canopy and storm water runoff analysis of Cambridge, MD, and worked to create web apps to display the data gathered through past projects. Away from the GIS, he is involved in Habitat for Humanity, plays for the Washington College Rugby Football Club, and edits Wikipedia.
