May 11, 2007, NAPLES, Fla. -- Pavan Kalvala, the newest member of WilsonMiller’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Business Unit, has a strong academic background in the technology WilsonMiller uses to manage and analyze spatial data. As a WilsonMiller GIS Analyst, Kalvala will join his professional colleagues in using specialized computer hardware and software to design applications that solve complex spatial problems and support better decision-making.
“Pavan is a welcome addition to our team,” said Jim Hunt, GISP, a WilsonMiller GIS Regional Manager. “His experience with ESRI’s ArcGIS Server software products is a big plus.”
Developed by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), ArcGIS enables users to deploy GIS functionality in a variety of formats and locations. Kalvala has worked with the software at Ball State University in Indiana and at ESRI’s headquarters in California.
Kalvala earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Jawaharlal University in Hyderabad, India, in 2003, and a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning, with a minor in GIS/Computer Science, at Ball State in 2006. While serving as a graduate assistant at Ball State, he helped train students in ArcGIS 9.1 software, offered technical support, served as a computer troubleshooter, and prepared GIS presentations and documents.
In 2006, Kalvala worked as a summer intern at ESRI, helping prepare the release of ArcGIS 9.2 and the development of ArcGIS Engine and Run-Time Client software. He coordinated and managed various GIS extension teams, reviewed and tested software, and created conceptual documents. He also participated in ESRI’s annual International User Conference last August in San Diego.
