I worked as the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Internee for the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) from May 18, 2015 through August 14th of the same year. I was stationed at the Old Lyme Field office and worked under the direct supervision of Deb Pacileo, my boss and GIS analyst for CT DEEP. My function in the agency was similar to my supervisor's as I had no single project that dominated my time, but was given a multitude of projects to create, edit, oversee, and produce. Some of these project included editing python scripts of former interns', creating a database for trawl survey data input, and finalizing maps to be shown at a CT DEEP board meeting. The CT DEEP internship was important to my development as a GISDE student as it provided insight into how federal agencies might typically use geospatial software on a day to day basis. This report is a relation of my time at CT DEEP and my opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of the internship position.
