Job Description:

You can play an important part in disaster relief missions as a Geospatial Engineer for the Army National Guard. In this role, you will extract and supply geographic data that supports military operations of all kinds and help commanders visualize the battlefield during combat.

------- Prepare military-style briefs covering all aspects of the terrain

Helpful Skills
------- Interest in geography, maps, and charts
------- Ability to demonstrate basic computer skills and work with drafting equipment
------- Conceptualize ideas into computer-generated 2-D/3-D geospatial products
------- Preference for a technical career field

Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career with construction, engineering, and architectural firms, as well as with government agencies as a surveyor, mapmaker, cartographer, cartographic technician, or photogrammetrist.

Earn While You Learn
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
