Geospatial Analytics Specialists

Unions and Associations

Geospatial analytics specialists do not belong to unions, but they can join professional associations that provide continuing education (CE) classes, networking opportunities, publications, certification, mentorship programs, and other resources. For example, MAPPS, which describes itself as the “preeminent national association of firms involved in many aspects and benefits of the geospatial field in the United States,” offers membership, an annual conference, bootcamps and other CE opportunities, and the Emerging Leaders Program, an educational forum for young geospatial professionals. The GIS Certification Institute and the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing provide certification and other resources. Other useful organizations include the Association of American Geographers, Geospatial Information & Technology Association, United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation, and Urban and Regional Information Systems Association.
