About

Alan Glennon co-founded and works at Arogi -- a private geospatial technology research laboratory. He earned his PhD at the UCSB Department of Geography under Michael Goodchild investigating spatial computation and geographically embedded networks. Alan has worked with and studied networks in geography for over two decades, starting with field research to map cave and karst watersheds. This initial interest in caves led him to a Master's degree in karst hydrogeology at Western Kentucky University. Concurrently, he worked as a ranger naturalist at Mammoth Cave National Park, Jewel Cave National Monument, and Great Basin National Park. In 1999, Glennon co-founded the WKU Hoffman Environmental Research Institute, a center dedicated to applied and basic research on human interaction with karst landscapes. Serving as the Institute's Assistant Director, Alan became proficient in geographic information systems and analysis. His wife Rhonda, also a geospatial engineer, works at the open source geospatial laboratory Mapzen. The Glennons live near San Francisco, California.
