Students who work in the cartography lab have the opportunity to test their coursework on client projects, and expand their knowledge and experience of project management, client development and professional portfolios. The cartography lab welcomes community partners and continues to work closely with non-profits in the area including the United Way of Dane County. Previously, Buckingham was a cartographer for a local company, where she worked with National Geographic, Pearson and other educational publishers. Outside of her university position, Buckingham has served as a Dane County Supervisor since April of 2018. Her committee work is with Health and Human Needs, UW-Extension of Dane County, Land Information Council and the Veterans Service Commission.
