Geographic Information System (GIS) technicians apply their knowledge of computers, electronics and geography to create maps and graphs using special GIS software. They work in the government sector, as well as industries such as communications, agriculture, engineering, health and human services, and education. Natural resource management groups, marketing firms, insurance companies, real estate developers and utility companies also employ GIS technicians, making this a rapidly growing field. Furthermore, GIS training can be of use to other professions such as drafting, surveying, computer programming and cartographic design.
