Aarthy has extensive experience in GIS, including performing spatial modeling and analysis, data acquisition and management, GIS-based environmental assessments and impact investigations, and field surveys.

Most recently, Aarthy served as GIS Analyst with Ecology and Environment, Inc. in Tallahassee, FL, where she was instrumental in establishing and maintaining a GIS system for the firm’s southeastern region, as well as providing GIS, remote sensing, and 3D visualization support to the natural resource management projects. She also has noteworthy experience at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN, where she supported the U.S. Department of Energy’s mission of developing, implementing, and applying geo-spatial technology to support national environmental and energy programs.

She has presented at such conferences as the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, and the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union. Her representative poster presentations have addressed such topics as geo-visualization for environmental decision-making, and detecting environmental change through spatio-temporal analysis of land use shifts.
