  • Darryl Clare Ph.D., GISP

                I was born in Harlem, New York City and raised in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. I went to college at Saint Mary’s College of California, in Moraga California, and graduated with a B.A. in Business Management.  After working in Malawi, Africa for three years, as a Secondary School Mathematics Teacher, I returned to the U.S. and I entered the University of Florida and Graduated with a Masters Degree in Urban and Regional Planning and I returned again to the University of Florida in pursuit of a Doctorate Degree in Geography with a minor in Geographic Information Systems and Planning.  I graduated with a Ph.D., in Geography in 1990.   My research area was international economic development, systems modeling, sustainable agriculture, and human settlement and culture. 


    I was hired by the City of Cape Coral to fill newly created Geographic Information Systems Management position a City that had a demand for my expertise in spatial modeling, planning and GIS as a growth management and financial marketing  support tool. While working with the City of Cape Coral, I have had the ability to use my analytical skills, to develop a system that lead to a consistently improved information flow, more efficient marketing of programs and services, and I was able to produce information delivery with greater accuracy. I pioneered successful use of the Geographic Information Systems technology applied in a variety of planning applications; technology needs assessment analysis, system setup and deployment in four different City departments.


    I taught geography for 9 years at Florida Gulf Coast University, as an Adjunct Professor and where I also taught Sociology for two years. In 2001 I became an Adjunct Professor at Edison State College (formally, Edison Community College) and I have been teaching beginning and advanced Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Modeling. I have hosted many workshops and trainings on the same topics.


    I am interested in exploring the spatial-temporal dynamics of the complex systems characteristic of ecological and human-environmental interactions, particularly as they are expressed at various scales across landscapes and regions. My diverse background enables me to contribute to a wide range of cross disciplinary and collaborative study. I embrace the objects that include Administration, Data Management, applied research, and strive to produce analyses that are purpose driven, contextually sensitive, scientifically rigorous, legally and economically credible.
