Overview: Project development is critical for the growth of GIS research and education. Geospatial and data-analysis projects often require outside funding such as grants and contracts, which GIS Project Developers can help to secure. GIS Project Developers contribute to the design and programming of custom geospatial solutions for various entities such as election boards, tax commissioners, and water resource boards. Other application development requests such as mobile geospatial applications, cartographic services, remote sensing analysis, and data and spatial analysis are common from clients across states and regions.
