GIS Work Force Survey
By Charlie Colgan, Professor of Public Policy, USM
Your help is requested to assist Maine in developing an expanded and
better educated GIS work force.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become more and more important in a variety of fields, and developing a work force with the needed education and training is a key to Maine 's future growth. To better understand the role of GIS in Maine today and identify ways to improve education and training, The University of Southern Maine, in cooperation with the University of Maine at Machias, is conducting a study of users and potential users of geographic information systems (and related technologies such as GPS and remote sensing.
We invite you to complete a short on-line survey, which will take about ten minutes or less of your time. The survey is intended both for those who directly use GIS and those who work in organizations which use or may not use GIS, so your help will be appreciated even if you do not currently use GIS or related technologies.
The work force survey requires a unique id for each participant. Anyone who would like to help with the survey can request access to it by emailing Charlie Colgan at USM. firstname.lastname@example.org.
