The County of Los Angeles does not currently have a specific job classification for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analysts, specialists or managers. It is important to the departments that use GIS to have a series of classifications for specific GIS postions from which to draw from.
It has been determined through discussions of the eGIS Steering Committee that this is a very important initiative that needs to be moved forward.Here is a summary of a few important items from a previous meeting:
- There is definite desire to move forward, and it is feasible to do so.
- We would like to create countywide GIS items to enhance recruitment and retention
- There are two different competencies: Analyst/Technician and Programmer
- We need to have a series starting at GIS Clerk (Technician) and moving to GIS Manager (GIO).
