Geospatial Engineers in the Army National Guard are trusted advisors to officers, leaders of enlisted Soldiers, and vital conduits in the communications process between the two. As such, you will collect and process military geographic information from decentralized sources (remote sensed imagery, digital data, intelligence data, existing topographic products, and other collateral data sources), present this information to leaders, and return decisions to the field.
You may also:
Supervise topographic surveying, cartography, and photolithography activities
Assist in topographic planning and control activities
Assist in determining requirements and providing technical supervision of geographic intelligence programs
The skills you learn as a Geospatial Engineer will help prepare you for a civilian career with construction, engineering, and architectural firms, as well as with government agencies as a surveyor, mapmaker, cartographer, cartographic technician, or photogrammetrist.
