Barbara Poore.

Barbara Poore joined the staff at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s St. Petersburg Science Center at St. Petersburg, FL, early in July 2004. Barbara has a strong background in geographic and environmental-policy research and communications. She received a B.A. in art history from Wellesley College, an M.A. in art history from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in geography from the University of Washington. Her research interests include the use of information by scientists and stakeholders in environmental decisionmaking, public attitudes toward the environment, the history of geographic-information technologies, and histories of land-use change. In addition to continuing these research projects, Barbara will be exploring linkages between Florida Integrated Science Center science and The National Map of the USGS.

Barbara was previously the communications director for the Federal Geographic Data Committee and has held editorial positions within the USGS.
