Exploration and Discovery through Maps: Teaching Science with Technology
Anne Neale is a research scientist at the Environmental Protection Agency. She is
the Project Lead for EnviroAtlas, an exciting project that has the attention of
the White House. Anne has a background in ecology and ecosystem services and has
been with EPA since 1991. Anne’s goal with EnviroAtlas is to develop innovative
maps and tools and make them accessible to a wide range of users. Her hope is that
EnviroAtlas maps can help raise awareness on the implications of individual and
community decisions on our ecosystems and on the critical goods and services those
ecosystems provide to people. Anne especially enjoys working with the young, innovative,
and enthusiastic talent who come into EPA as research fellows and contractors to
work on EnviroAtlas as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Anne received a Bachelor
of Science Degree in Environmental Science from Utah State University in 1986 and
has also received extensive statistics and Geographic Information Systems training.
Jessica Daniel is a Student Services Contractor at the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency in the Office of Research and Development. Jessica has been at EPA for three
years, where she facilitates communications and outreach efforts for the EnviroAtlas
project. She is invested in translating scientific information for multiple audiences
and effectively utilizing web tools and technology in scientific communications.
She holds a M.E.M. in Ecosystem Science and Conservation from Duke University, and
received her B.A. in Environmental Communications and a Certificate in Urban Ecology
from Oglethorpe University.
