The GIS Analyst class series is responsible for the design, development and implementation of computerized geographic applications for use by public and private organizations. The incumbent is expected to perform the intermediate to advanced range of analytical and programming duties with a minimum amount of supervision and direction. This position is distinguished from the IS Manager in that the incumbent does not have management responsibilities for the GIS staff, but will be required to provide guidance, training and lead direction to lower level staff.
This is the first working level in the GIS Analyst series. Incumbents initially work under closer supervision on assignments of narrower scope and limited complexity. As experience and proficiency are gained, there is greater independence of action and increased scope and complexity of assignments. GIS Analyst I is flexibly staffed with GIS Analyst II, and incumbents normally advance to the higher level based on departmental needs and upon demonstration of the required proficiency and skills, and satisfying the experience requirements.
