A GIS Technician job in Portland, Oregon is available courtesy of Adecco Engineering & Technology. Experience with ArcGIS, LiDAR, and experience or exposure to 3D CAD systems are the “Must Haves” for this job. The person in this full-time GIS Remote Sensing Office Technician (contracted) role will process and analyze a variety of spatial data products (including LiDAR data, Orthophotos, and Video) and assist with general analysis support. An understanding of geospatial concepts and GPS survey methods is desired, but not mandatory, and candidates with GIS coursework or applicable work experience are preferred. 5 open jobs.

Some experience with ArcGIS is required.
Experience or exposure to any 3D CAD system (Microstation is the system you will use)
LIDAR knowledge, experience would also be a big plus – candidates should at least know what this is. Lidar (also written LIDAR, LiDAR or LADAR) is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Although thought by some to be an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging, the term lidar was actually created as a portmanteau of "light" and "radar".
Though not required, experience in the following areas is greatly desired:
Python or VB scripting
Experience in the ESRI suite
Adobe creative suite
CAD based software
Working in a 3D environment
