My 2015 summer internship at Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection lasted for 12 weeks from June 1 to August 12. I was supervised by Juliet Swigor. As a GIS Specialist intern, I assisted staff from Division of Watershed Management, working on 2016 National Water Quality Assessment project. My responsibilities were diverse, including watershed delineation, database management, customized ArcGIS add-in tool development and mapping. I extracted sub-basins and generated land use statistic summary for all of them across the entire Massachusetts using python scripts. Also a map covers detailed distribution of watersheds was created. This paper reports information of organization description, areas of expertise, the summer internship, and it also provides examples of my works and review of the summer internship.
