The report provides a detailed description of my internship experience with Clark Labs during the summer of 2014. As a research assistant, I was involved in the Aquaculture and Coastal Habitats Mapping project. This project was funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. My responsibility was to create a baseline map of coastal habitats and the distribution of aquaculture (mostly shrimp) in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. The internship was valuable, and gave an opportunity to learn and grasp more skills. It will influence my career goal in the future. I will definitely recommend this internship to people who have interest in GIS and Remote Sensing, who enjoy facing challenges and want to use their power to develop the world
