Research Experience and Interests

Mr. Tuttle was initially a staff member of the GIST group from 1993 to 1997 with primary responsibility for management of the TVA Base Mapping and Imagery Project; a large scale planimetric and topographic digital mapping effort for the DOE Oak Ridge Reservation, Portsmouth, OH and Paducah, KY facilities.  In addition, he was the principal investigator for implementation of geospatial technologies for health risk assessment, education and environmental equity with ATSDR and lead programmer for the Oak Ridge Environmental Information System (OREIS).  Since rejoining the GIST group in 2004, Mr. Tuttle has been an integral part of a variety of efforts ranging from coordination of the GIST group responsibilities to DOE emergency preparation and response for the Visualization and Modeling Workgroup, micro-scale modeling and simulation, transportation impacts and analysis, geospatial knowledge discovery.

For seven years, Mr. Tuttle served the State of Tennessee as the Director of GIS Services in the Office for Information Resources, Department of Finance and Administration. Through this role, he gained valuable experience related to the day-to-day operation of state-wide information technology infrastructures, communication infrastructures, and application integration spanning multi-agency, intergovernmental, and enterprise implementations.

Mr. Tuttle’s current focus area is applying lessons learned from his diverse geospatial technology and multiyear, multi-participant project management background to multiple efforts currently underway within the GIST group.
