I created this map as part of of ESRI’s Cartography MOOC. I decided to query out the category 1 hurricanes by month to do a bit of analysis in regards to where hurricanes tend to occur throughout the calendar year.

Published by shanecanyonwalsh
I grew up in a small town in Central Pennsylvania, raised on a healthy dose of old school hip hop, Kool Aid, punk rock, egg rolls, skateboarding and Star Wars. Later, I played in bands, started a record label, printed a fanzine, joined the U.S. Coast Guard, lived in nine states and somehow, along the way, learned how to drive a forklift. I earned a degree in photography from the Antonelli Institute, then spent the next decade as a lifestyle, fashion, wedding and portrait photographer, living both in New York City and Philadelphia. I then felt I needed a new challenge, one that combined with my photography background would effect change in this world. I decided to go back to school to earn a bachelor’s degree in Geography with dual minors in Geographic Information Systems and Planning with a concentration in Geoscience. I am currently attending Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ.
