Ask Gilham what he does for a living and you’ll get a simple answer: “Maps.”
More specifically: three-dimensional maps of Fairchild Air Force Base.
Gilham, a 26-year-old Coeur d’Alene native, is a journeymen for the 92nd Civil Engineer Squadron. He spends his days surveying the terrain and buildings of Fairchild and logging that information into a digital mapping system.
Those maps are a vital resource for designing new structures on the base, planning for emergencies and routing vehicles to improve traffic flow.
