Marc Hunter

Marc is a Supervisory Cartographer with the USGS Astrogeology Science Center in Flagstaff, Arizona, specializing in planetary GIS and data management.

I came to Astrogeology as part of the Planetary Geologic Mapping group to help with GIS work (digitizing paper-only maps, new starts for NASA funded mappers, developing ArcGIS tools, planetary nomenclature, and help desk). My work has expanded from there to include data management, geospatial and metadata standards, archiving, and supervision. I enjoy applying my previous experiences in education and military leadership to help others further their career goals. Currently, I oversee the AstroLink archive and Terrestrial Analogs Data Portal projects, as well as co-lead the Data Integration section.
