Education Education and Experience Experience
GEOINT Analyst (Cartography)
Bachelor’s degree in cartography or a major that included, or was supplemented by, at least 30 semester (45 quarter) hours of coursework in cartography and/or directly related sciences and mathematics. Coursework may include, but is not limited to, astronomy, cartography, forestry, geodesy, geology, geophysics, GIS, land surveying, photogrammetry, physical and geological oceanography, geography, and remote sensing. Computer software classes associated with current technology, GIS courses, and information management classes may also be counted. The 30 semester (45 quarter) hours must include at least 6 semester (9 quarter) hours of college-level nonbusiness mathematics or statistics, but these should not account for more than 15 semester (22 quarter) hours Four years, including a minimum of 30 semester (45 quarter) hours of coursework in any area listed in the education requirements plus experience that demonstrates the ability to successfully perform the duties associated with this work Six years of significant applied experience in the cartographic field that includes the use of current GIS tools
