In his role as a GIS consultant based at Niche’s head office in Parramatta, Neil uses his skills in data visualisation and statistical analysis to produce report-quality mapping and figures to convey spatial data.
“I’m naturally a visual communicator, and I enjoy finding ways to interpret and efficiently illustrate the spatial detail that our clients need to see in their reports,” says Neil.
Neil joined Niche in April 2021, with more than three years of experience as a spatial data analyst and a background in ecology.
“My degree was in environmental biology and plant science, so I have a really good understanding of the types of data collection and analysis that my ecologist colleagues need, and what the end goals of their assessments are going to be,” explains Neil.
As part of our in-house GIS team, Neil provides spatial data management to support ecological and heritage assessments across a wide range of industry sectors and locations.
“Within the GIS team, we’re really excited about what we’re able to do with ArcGIS and what the future of spatial data will bring.”Neil Berry
“The variety of data that we work with keeps things interesting,” says Neil. “Currently I’m working on mapping for Biodiversity Impact Assessments and heritage assessments for rail infrastructure projects. I’m always learning something new which keeps me feeling challenged and engaged.”
In recent months, the GIS team has been undertaking training and are supporting each other’s learning as they transition to ArcGIS Enterprise GIS architecture technology.
“Niche is very proactive in adopting new technology,” explains Neil.
“And our GIS discipline manager Matt Harris is a great teacher who fosters the caring team culture that really flows all the way from the top of the business – in fact, caring for each other is a way of life at Niche. ”
“Within the GIS team, we’re really excited about what we’re able to do with ArcGIS – and what the future of spatial data will bring,” says Neil.
