My name is Alexander Coster. I studied at University of British Columbia in the Environment and Sustainability Degree program before obtaining an Advanced Diploma in GIS from BCIT. I focused my research on applying GIS to the development of sustainable energy sources and the effects of climate change on disease vectors in North America. Throughout my studies I worked for the Stanley Park Ecology Society(SPES) and the District of North Vancouver (DNV) in the Environment Department. I finished my practicum in the DNV GIS Department, and from there I started working for the Land Title and Survey Authority (LTSA). I maintain and develop the ParcelMap British Columbia (PMBC), an extensive cadaster database product used by a variety of private, municipal and provincial clients.
