Final Portfolio

Hi, I’m Max Felsenstein, a junior Writing & Communications student-athlete at Drew University. This website demonstrates my skills using Geographic Information Systems from our GIS class.

My final project, comparing Major League Baseball stadium elevations to exit velocity and home run distances demonstrates my best abilities using different GIS tools. Using Google Maps, Sheets, and Graphs helped finish this project.

Over the course of the semester, I learned how to use ArcGIS Pro, programming using Open Source GIS- R Studio, digitizing, Geocoding, 3D analyst, spatial analyst, ModelBuilder, and helping analyze different types of data amongst many different types of GIS.

A list of my favorite projects:

How Elevation affects Home Run Distances in the MLB

Tornado Density Map (1950-2017)

Midterm Project: Mass Shootings in 2017 and 2018

Comparison of USGS Contours and Lidar Returns at Drew University

In the tool bar on the right side, you’ll find easy access to each project we did over the course of the semester categorized by the skill used in class which is accompanied by an example of how we used that skill over the course of the semester.
