Ho-Chunk Nation welcomes new GIS Coordinator

By Kaili Berg

     Scott Nesbit is the new GIS Coordinator for the Ho-Chunk Nation in the Realty Division supporting the geospatial needs of the Ho-Chunk Nation employees and tribal members. 

     Scott’s passion for maps, technology, outdoors, and conservation took him back to school in pursuit of a new degree, which would allow him to enhance local landscapes and communities.

     Scott has most recently worked at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WiDNR) in the Real Estate Department. Before working at WiDNR, Scott worked at Xcel Energy as a GIS Intern and for MIT Sea Grant & National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as a research intern developing a survey/mapping workflow using Unmanned Aerial Systems for eelgrass along the coast of Massachusetts.

     Scott graduated from the University Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2018 with a degree in Environmental Geography along with an Advanced Remote Sensing certificate.
