A career in mapping stands the test of time

August 20th, 2013 by M. Lorraine Tighe, PhD

A career in remote sensing and GIS exists in every imaginable discipline, from environmental science to commercial businesses and much more. Such a career path has a wide range of opportunities available to let you combine your passions or interests with GIS and or remote sensing for a satisfying and successful career. Intermap’s very own Senior Project Manager, who keeps us on track with our large mapping projects where we are currently mapping the diverse landscapes in the Philippine’s and Alaska, has been in the mapping industry for the past four decades.
