Los Angeles County has just released a complete GIS series that will support its ability to hire and retain Geographic Information Systems (GIS) staff that will help the County use geography and GIS technologies to support the citizens of the County more effectively for emergency response, citizen engagement, child and family well being, and analyis and decision making.
Three years in the making, with critical support from the Chief Executive Office and the Board of Supervisors, the GIS classifications were approved on May 15th. Click here to see the announcement.
The release of the detailed specification (job descriptions) will now enable departments to develop their GIS strategies, and enable the County to attract the best GIS talent.
