Zackary King is a geospatial specialist that has worked for the Doig River First Nation for the past 5 years. He studied Human Geography at the University of Saskatchewan and followed that up with an Advanced Diploma in GIS at BCIT. Zack began his GIS career in Archaeology and Cultural Resource Management in 2014 and joined the Doig River First Nation team in 2018. Since then, he has worked on making GIS available to DRFN’s staff through the development of software and processes that simplify consultation, field data collection and information sharing. The main principle behind the work is to ensure DRFN maintains ownership of its data, ensure that it is protected and future proof and integrates it throughout all the departments allowing a single point of access to authoritative information. Zack is passionate about helping preserve the Tsáá? Ché Ne Dane culture and help them be stewards of the land by using modern software to combat cumulative effects from industry, assist in healing the land with restoration planning and projects and help in community growth by assisting in urban reserve development and community and emergency response planning.
