Congratulations to MPC’s Ryan Justice, who recently had a map project published in a Geographic Information System (GIS) trade book.

The publication enjoys worldwide readership.

Ryan is a GIS Specialist in MPC’s Information Services division. He is a graduate of The University of Tennessee’s Geography Department and has been with MPC for 3 1/2 years. Again, congratulations Ryan!
