Job or Internship Title: Geodata Processor
Location: 2828 SW Corbett Ave, Suite 203
Portland, OR 97201
Application Deadline: May 2012
WeoGeo has created a one-stop web based marketplace for mapping. It supplies surveyors, engineers, cartographers, and scientists with the ability to conveniently store, search, and exchange high-resolution CAD and GIS mapping products. Map authors easily list their data for sale. Researchers quickly find the data they need.
Position Description & Qualifications:
The main goal of this position will be to create and maintain data listings for WeoGeo’s clients. A listing is a web representation of a geo-dataset ( example - http://market.weogeo.com/datasets/
tiger_oregon_census_tracts_block_groups_blocks_tigerline_2009). You will be exposed to several leading GIS software packages (ESRI’s ArcGIS suite, Pitney Bowes’ MapInfo product, ITT’s ENVI, and Safe’s FME Server), many geo-data formats (ESRI Shape, MapInfo TAB, ENVI, …), and cutting edge web mapping technologies (MapNik, OpenLayers,..). Prior knowledge in any of these is a plus but is not required. However, an ability to demonstrate a basic understanding of GIS and cartographic principals is required. Scripted programming experience (Python, Ruby, bash) is desired but not critical.
Start Date: As soon as possible.
Hours per Week: Ideally this is a full time position. But will consider well-qualified interns.
