How it all started Take me to the project!
I started using Mapbox earlier this year and I was hooked from the start. I’ve dabbled in geospatial analysis and visualization before, but I was always put off by the huge barrier of entry. Most spatial analysis requires massive amounts of domain expertise, knowledge of specialized data sources, and a huge time investment to gather the data, clean it, and harmonize it to all work well together.
I’ve been going through the job application cycle recently, which meant updating my CV. You can write a CV with Microsoft Word, but I find it exceptionally frustrating to do any sort of fancy formatting in Word, and more imporantly, I want my CV to be a page on my website (not just a downloadable file), that has the responsiveness expected of any modern webpage. I found this excellent HTML/CSS template from Thomas Hardy, and decided it was the aesthetic I was going for.
