A GIS Intern will perform a variety of GIS office tasks with limited time in the field (approximately 1-5 days per month, depending on the needs of the office and the intern’s forestry experience and interests). The GIS intern will be assigned project work (~80% of the workload), such as processing scanned aerial photos (file management, georeferencing, and creating mosaics in ArcMap) or spatial editing of various data layers, along with editing transportation and stream layer attributes in preparation for process improvement projects. Other work will include assisting with edits and map requests from Foresters. The intern will gain experience in georeferencing, digitzing, editing, data management, photo interpretation, custom mapping and basic forest practices.
