This is essentially a diary. For the most part, I'll be covering modern geospatial workflows, places I've traveled, and more generally, things that I appreciate.

In particular, the works of Arsene Wenger, Walter Segal, Olaf Stapledon, and Christopher Alexander inspire me. They've helped build well-formed, human spaces that provide stable platforms for creative action. If that sounds cheesy, understand it's because the entire time I was writing it I was imaging the way that Wenger has built his team around Ozil.

The author

I'm Jacques Tardie, a geospatial developer out of San Francisco. I'm blessed to work with the incredible folks at Mapbox. Most of my time there is spent working with satellite imagery and the infrastructure required to support our workflows. Practically, that means lots of AWS, Python, and Bash.

Aside from that, I'm a dog person, a gooner, an Acadian, and I'd love to hear from you.
