Larry has established himself as a solid team builder and player in the GIS, 3D, visualization, and realtime simulation software environment

Geographic Information Systems Projects

Larry is an active part of the exciting and quickly expanding world of GIS and continues to read and learn more about the subject. His particular interest is in using GIS to create history-oriented analysis projects. One of his first maps was showing Italians in Texas in 1900, a look at the counties who had Italian immigrants in 1900, when the arrived in those counties, what their primary occupations were, and where they came from in Italy.
