· Validate and fix topological issues in the vector data
· Perform transactional edits on the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD)
· Ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing
· Proficiency with the ESRI ArcGIS version 10.x software suite, including the spatial analyst and network analyst extensions
