Kara Utter, GIS Consultant
I am a GIS Consultant and owner of Dynamic Visions GIS. With over 10 years of experience in GIS, I have worked with local, state, and federal government entities, as well as the nonprofit and private sectors. I spent the last five years building and coordinating a County-level GIS program, with my previous experience being focused on Natural Resources, Environmental Science, and Land Management.
I excel at systems thinking, adaptable approaches to systems solutions, and online application development. My capacity to build a GIS program, improve efficiency, increase public access to information, provide methods of asset tracking, and quickly adapt to a changing environment has resulted in many successful project resolutions and Global recognition through ESRI’s Special Achievements in GIS (SAG) awards (2021).
I am an active member of the community through participation on multiple boards and committees. These experiences range from leading sub-committees and planning conferences for URISA International, helping to plan conferences as an officer and Treasurer of Northern Rockies Chapter of URISA, and volunteering for nonprofits in my local community.
