Wendy Stout
Spatial Analysis Laboratory Director/GIS Lecturer

Wendy Stout is a Certified Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Professional with an extensive background working with FEMA, NASA, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and numerous higher education institutions including the College of William and Mary, John Tyler Community College, Thomas Nelson Community College, and Old Dominion University. She is also a Certified Yoga Instructor.

Stout recently provided LiDAR training to over 20 local government employees from Southwest Virginia localities in a grant funded collaboration with Virginia Tech, Wise County, and USGS. This opportunity provided data to rural localities as well as effective techniques and tools designed to help local government agencies most effectively leverage LiDAR technologies and data products to benefit applications such as public safety, emergency management, mining and erosion. The training allowed participants to succeed at meeting their respective local government objectives. Also, while working at VITA, Stout was awarded USGS funding for Lidar Acquisition for Henrico County and City of Williamsburg through the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for (3D) Elevation Program. This award will correct the elevation data for the James River in Henrico County that is currently offset by over 15 feet in some locations in the national dataset.
