Whiteout Solutions

Summer 2020 Site Review

Position: Software Engineering Intern
Student: Sustainability Studies & Computer Science Senior

Student Name: Eliezer Pearl

This summer I worked as a software engineering intern at Whiteout Solutions in Lyndonville, VT. Whitout Solutions is small business in rural Vermont looking to make forestry mapping a more accessible practice to it's clients. In particular, Whiteout Solutions is making forestry mapping more efficient and cheap by using lightweight drones instead of large aircraft to scan forests from above using LiDAR sensing. I found this internship from a newsletter distributed by a coworking space near my house. As an intern, I worked on writing code to control the drone and show the results to customers. My favorite aspect of this internship was writing code that would go to a sustainable cause; oftentimes, there is a disconnect between the coder and the morals behind their work, and I am lucky that this was not the case for me.
