Tom MacWright
GIS Developer, Development Seed

Website | @tmcw

Tom is a GIS developer at Development Seed, where he has been the lead architect of our open source mapping stack that combines Mapnik with Drupal to create beautiful custom maps. Tom’s work has led him deep into cloud hosting and computing research, where he is pioneering ways to leverage cloud services to support international development work. He recently collaborated with Amazon Web Services to get 125 GB’s of TIGER U.S. Census data hosted in the Amazon cloud, making this important public data set more accessible and easier to work with than ever before.

In addition to mapping, Tom is also an experienced open source developer who has spent most of his time programming in Drupal. At Development Seed, he has helped build large, complex websites and communications tools for organizations like the New America Foundation and Human Rights Watch.

Tom received degrees in Computer Science and Religious Studies from The College of William and Mary.
