Hi All,

I stumbled upon this link today: http://www.careervoy...erging-main.cfm

There's quite a bit here, but what I found interesting:

1 - Geospatial Technology is one of just two emerging industries they choose to highlight.

2 - there's a great (my opinion) simple description of what GIS is: http://www.careervoy...hnology-gis.cfm

3 - there's a list of "In-Demand Occupations" which includes Cartographers (though they're lumped together with Photogrammetrists). Projected growth seems pretty good here.

There's a whole lot more, including salary info and growth predictions until 2016 by state...

... and finally, it looks like they need a video of a cartographer at work. Maybe someone here can help ; )

-Cory

Interesting links, thanks.

You know if they want some video of cartographers at work they could contact CSAA (now AAA of N. California). They shot us a few times in the past, of course they always got the guys doing scribe coat and prepping film! Even though we were mostly doing digital cart. Oh well. ;)

Bummer, looks like they closed the link for some reason. That was really good information. Did anyone here download any of it?

Reviving an old thread here...I found this on the U.S. Dept. of Labor site about Geospatial Technology being a High Growth Industry.
