Our firm is urgently looking for a detail-oriented cartographer who works freelance, and who has experience drawing transit maps in Adobe Illustrator. In the course of our planning studies, we create many transit maps for our clients, all in a similar style like the slice above.
We need someone who can start at once and work quickly under direction. There is not much room for design creativity, as you will be revising maps whose style is already established. The job mainly rewards speed, accuracy, and an eye for clarity and completeness.
I invite freelance cartographers to send us a quick note at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Nov 1. Include:
We reserve the right to ask you to complete a very small task, taking no more than an hour, to establish your competence at the type of work we have. We are likely to have at least 60 hours of work for you as part of this contract. It’s possible that this could turn into something longer term.
Our offices are in Portland, Oregon and Arlington, Virginia, but you don’t need to be there to meet with us directly, although it is helpful to be on the same side of the planet so that we can interact by phone easily.
Reply by November 1 please, but because time is short we reserve the right to act as soon as we find the right person. Please spread the word if you know others who may be interested.
Please save the date and mark your calendars for the 2018 celebration of GIS Day on Wednesday, November 14th from 11 AM to 2 PM at the Forest Service Pacific Northwest Regional Office in Portland, Oregon!
The U.S. Forest Service Data Resources Management staff is hosting this public event, which will be held at the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Building (1220 SW 3rd Ave). The welcome-to-event booths and Smokey Bear photo opportunities will be held on the first floor gallery past the elevators. Guest speakers and interactive displays will occur on the ground floor in conference rooms 1b and 3. Speakers will be scheduled for short talks on the impact of GIS on different focus areas. Also on display will be examples of how the Forest Service and partners utilize geospatial information and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology for the Greatest Good.
Hydrologic Technician III
The Klamath Tribes
Chiloquin, OR 97624

The Hydrologic Technician III position is located in the Aquatics Program within the Klamath Tribes Natural Resources Department. The primary purpose of this position is to support the Hydrologist by working independently and as part of a team performing field data collection tasks to develop scientific information regarding the movement and condition of water, especially as it relates to aquatic ecosystem functions, and then formulates and implements strategies for restoration, monitoring, or management.
The Hydrologic Technician III will measure and monitor surface water and ground water flows, levels, and conditions, and integrates these data into scientific endeavors to restore and maintain aquatic ecosystems and regulatory processes designed to protect the Klamath Tribes’ water rights. Other duties include establishing and maintaining a network of gauges providing continuous measurements of water flow, level, and condition in rivers, streams, springs, lakes, marshes, and shallow ground water.
The Hydrologic Technician III works with other Aquatics Program staff (Fish Biologist, Hydrologist, Fluvial Geomorphologist, Environmental Restoration Planner, and Water Quality Technicians) to implement a Fisheries Restoration Plan and an Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Plan for the Upper Klamath River Basin. Restoring and maintaining important Tribal fisheries is the primary goal of the Fisheries Restoration Team. Primary objectives include: 1) re-establishing extinct spawning populations of endangered Lost River and Short Nose suckers; and 2) re-introducing extinct populations of Chinook salmon in the Upper Klamath River Basin. The primary goal of the Ecosystem Restoration team is managing and remediating processes contributing to hypereutrophication and fish habitat degradation in and above Upper Klamath Lake. Primary objectives include: 1) managing and remediating non-point source nutrient loading from agricultural landscapes to measurable reduce cyanobacteria blooms and the related adverse water quality in Upper Klamath Lake; and 2) rehabilitating and maintaining habitats to the extent necessary to recover and sustain important native fisheries, including Lost River and Short Nose sucker, Redband trout, Bull trout, Steelhead, and Chinook salmon.

Background on the Missing Maps project from the Red Cross
Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project cofounded by the American Red Cross. It aims to put 200 million people "on the map" by 2021 - mapping areas where humanitarian organizations like the Red Cross are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people. Due to current disasters and rapidly-changing needs, the November 15th Missing Maps tasks will be identified on or around November 1.
