URISA Introduces Model GIS Job Descriptions e-Publication

Des Plaines, Ill., Sept. 12, 2013—URISA is pleased to announce the Second Edition of its publication, “Model GIS Job Descriptions” as an electronic publication. The publication provides valuable information for individuals who hire GIS staff.

The publication, authored by J. Allison Butler, provides guidance to GIS managers in how to draft job descriptions and to human resource professionals by describing aspects of the GIS field that need to be accommodated in job descriptions and organizational structures.

Some of the important questions addressed:

  • How do you write up job descriptions to staff your GIS department?
  • What is the typical hierarchy of positions within a GIS department?
  • What are the essential job functions, education, experience, knowledge, skills and abilities required at each level?

The publication is available for purchase through URISA’s website and is offered in digital (ePub*) format for easy download and flexible accessibility. Visit http://www.urisa.org/resources/books-and-resources/ for details and purchase information.
