Ben Schroeder


I’m Ben Schroeder, a developer and geo-enthusiast currently living just outside of Washington, D.C. My heart lies at the intersection of webdev and geography.

I went to college at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, where I studied a combination of Urban Studies, Geography, and German. While there, I was fortunate enough to work at the American Geographical Society Library and Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office, among other places.

After college, I received a job offer from the one and only Esri, where I now work as a software application developer. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, travel, and listening to music.

This website gives me the opportunity to write about mapping, development, and anything else I want to share with the world. I have plenty of big plans for the future, so please stay tuned.
