Welcome to my website:  RKB Mapping

My name is Richard Baron. I am offering my skills and experience in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Cartography that you might find useful for your project. I, also, have a background in Landscape Visualization and Computer Graphics that brings an artist sensitivity to map making.

I work as a Free-Lance GIS Analyst and Cartographer.  I like working  as part of a TEAM, offering my technical assistance to a project, but not in the traditional 40 hr per week format.  I can and love to work at home.  I have access to what I need to accomplish a job. I believe in telecommunication, and using the internet to pass work back and forth and to complete a job, though I am readily available on a short-term basis to be onsite locally (Chico, California).

I am not part of a corporation, but rather a small sole proprietor, who keeps my overhead really low so I can offer fair and reasonable rates.

23 Years Experience in GIS and Cartography. 
Low overhead means lower costs for you. 
Flexible and Personable, Easy to work with.

I have been trying out GEOGRAPHIC IMAGER by Avenza. I was looking for a tool to allow me to change the look of DOQQ and TIF images in Photoshop, including all the filters, etc. while maintaining geographic coordinates. So far a lot of what is in GI I can do with other tools, such as mosaicing, transforming, georeferencing images, etc. But I want to go through the entire tutorial.

What It looks like now is that I would get the minimum license which would give me the ability to use Photoshop tools to enhance, change, etc the images, maintaining the coordinates. I don’t think I need all the other tools that comes with it. But I will see.
