For Immediate Release: URISA's GISCorps Announces Community Maps 4 Puerto Rico Fundraising Campaign
Des Plaines, Illinois (August 28, 2018) Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017 causing catastrophic damage. Recovery is difficult for hurricane survivors given the extent of destruction and the many obstacles to getting back to normalcy. Financial resources for the massive reconstruction are limited. Please help these small communities recover and prepare for the future, by funding travel expenses of GISCorps volunteers that will provide them with maps to aid in recovery planning.
The Problem: Local government agencies and other community organizations are experiencing a desperate need for current maps that show flood zones, landslide prone areas, transportation and other critical infrastructure which were heavily impacted throughout the island. Without access to the latest information, including information about the impacts of the disaster, locations of recovery projects, or updated hazard information, communities are struggling to make critical decisions:
The Solution: Updated mapping will help local communities rebuild and plan for future disasters, as well as make important decisions about the sustainability of their communities. Maps help local stakeholders with economic development planning, natural resource conservation, decision making for safe land use, and improving community health. The teams will be producing maps for printing as well as in an online web map format.
The Mission: URISA’s GISCorps will provide teams of volunteers that will spend two weeks on the ground to assist local communities in need of mapping assistance. Volunteer teams of two to four GIS professionals will work with identified communities to provide custom services depending on their needs. These communities will be identified in partnership with FEMA Community Planners and the local governments they are assisting with recovery. This will include the consideration of services that are being coordinated with other organizations and local resources on the ground.
GISCorps volunteers will assist in a variety of ways:
Chosen volunteers will not be paid for their time spent on the island or for any follow-up work that results from the project. All donations will go directly to covering per diem and travel expenses.
The Volunteers: URISA's GISCorps coordinates volunteer-based, short term, highly specialized GIS service projects to underprivileged communities. GISCorps has completed over 240 missions in 71 countries. More than 1,700 volunteers have participated in these missions, contributing over 70,000 hours. Learn more.
As GISCorps is a 100% volunteer-run program of URISA (501c3), we are looking for donations of all sizes to help make this project possible. Volunteers will be recruited from our database and extensively vetted by the GISCorps Core Committee. GISCorps , FEMA and URISA have teamed up to bring this humanitarian vision to reality.
The Goal: We hope to get GIS professionals to Puerto Rico before close of this hurricane season.
Please contribute via this GoFundMe campaign. All donations are tax deductible. No donation is too small.

Modernizing the National Spatial Reference System in 2022
Aug 31, 2018 1:00 PM EDT
In 2022, the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) will replace all components of the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), including NAD 83 and NAVD 88, with a new system that is geocentric, time-dependent and not reliant upon passive control. Every survey, map or geolocation created today will be incompatible with the new system by as much as 4 meters, depending on where in the United States you are working. This misalignment could apply to every latitude and/or longitude and/or height in your work.
In order to assist users in understanding and adapting to the new system, two technical reports were released by NGS in 2017, under the title “Blueprint for 2022”, with a third, companion report in the works. The first two reports provide the scientific and definitional aspects of four new time-dependent terrestrial reference frames and their companion “geopotential datum” (replacing and expanding upon the historic concept of a “vertical datum”). The third report will focus on the user community and how it can work within this new paradigm of time-dependent geodetic control.
This talk will focus on all of the changes to expect in the future and ways that all geospatial professionals can adapt and thrive in the new system.
Quantum Spatial (QSI) is interested in bringing on temporary contract workers through our staffing agency for assistance completing projects we have lined up for Fall and Winter 2018. QSI anticipates filling 10-12 full time temporary positions. This is an entry level position with comparable pay for the area. QSI hires a large number of people from this pool to work at QSI as full time Technicians as those positions become available, anyone interested in a career at QSI is encouraged to apply to this position.
Contractors will likely be working on utility line mapping projects classifying LiDAR point clouds. While a basic understanding of LiDAR is required for the position, experience working with LiDAR data and the software program Microstation is not - QSI will train all contractors in our workflows. Candidates with backgrounds in GIS, Engineering, Remote Sensing, or a related field are encouraged to apply.
Please submit resumes for this position by email to Alison Percifield at email@example.com.
