Daniel K. Pearson has been with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) – Texas Water Science Center (TXWSC) since 2002. He currently serves as the Central Texas Studies Chief and oversees two sections: Data and Spatial Studies Section and the Central Texas Hydrologic Studies and Research Section. He provides technical expertise to TXWSC cooperators and staff, and oversees a team of hydrologists, geographers and IT specialists whose function is to produce innovative geospatial solutions; perform complex hydrologic and spatial analyses; and contribute to ongoing research within the Center. Daniel has overseen the transformation of the Data and Spatial Studies Section during this time from a data production shop to an application development and data management enterprise. Daniel earned a Bachelor’s of Science (2002) from Texas State University-San Marcos in Geographic Information Science/Cartography (GIS) with a minor in Aquatic Biology. He also earned professional certification in GIS from Texas State University-San Marcos in 2004.
