I'm studying Geography and had some introduction courses for GIS where we worked with ArcGIS. I thought about specializing on it but I'm not quite sure yet. I'm a freshman studying in Germany.

I currently work as an environmental geographer, and while I don't hold any certification in GIS I do use it in my work every day and have for like 6 or 7 years. I took some courses in it for my Masters, but they didn't teach me much I hadn't already gotten from on-the-job experience. Love the technology, there so much power in the ability to display information spatially, everything from statistics to photographs can be represented on a map or dissected geographically, it's an amazing tool.

I used arcGIS for a while, but I got fed-up with the proprietary nature of it, so I've been transitioning my whole office's workflows to open source alternatives to allow for better information sharing. If there is one thing I hate about GIS it is the plethora of data formats that don't often convert cleanly.

I here you man, I have never seen some many file formats to convey the same data. They should generalize the whole thing or atleast create a universal file system and make everyone convert their data.

I love GIS and cant wait to get out of school and get out of the insurance field (currently working as a medicare claims adjuster for Humana). I also was a topographical analyst in the Army so that is where i found my passion.

I used ArcGIS in the summer when gathering storm systems data around the city of Austin. Is a nice nifty tool to use.

I have about 24 credits in GIS and an undergrad degree in Geography. I used to be a GIS Tech in the Geology department, but I've moved away from it professionally as of late. Still have it on my home PC and use it for random projects; usually just site layout maps.

Data conversion and projection conversion suck, but it's still light years beyond what it was 9 years ago with ArcView 3.x.
