· Perform quality control and adjustments to hydro breaklines, waterbody features digitized from imagery, and hydrologic unit boundaries
· 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

· Bachelor’s degree or higher in the biological sciences, agriculture, natural resource management or related disciplines appropriate to the position
· Demonstrated programming experience with Python
· Experience developing and maintaining web-based GIS applications
· Experience performing transactions on the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) using the NHD update tools
