Tanner Jessel Blog URL

Hello Diedra,

I am a new, first semester online GIS program student.

I had the same question as another new student that you answered August 29 concerning using a personal Google Account versus a UWF student Google Account.


If it is not required that I use the UWF student Google Account to host the blog, I think I would prefer to use my personal Google Account to host the blog; it is easier not to have to log out of my personal Google Account to log in to my Student UWF Google Account (Past experience is it’s not possible to use two Google Accounts at once within the same browser session).

The URL for my personal blogger.com blog that I intend to use for the UWF online GIS program is:


(Please forgive the vainglorious branding, as I’m obviously a GIS data novice – call it wishful thinking).



About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
