Hybrid Geographic Information System (GIS) Analyst

The Challenge:

With Cloud based tools, faster GPUs, and the explosion of connected devices, geospatial data has more potential than ever. That data is powerful in the hands of a skilled analyst who can turn it into mission critical information. If that sounds like you, we have an opportunity for you to use your geospatial analysis skills to transform the defense and intelligence industry.

As a Booz Allen geospatial analyst, you’ll be working with a team of analysts and technologists to extract meaning and context from a variety of vector and raster data sources. Using tools like ArcGIS, SketchUp, CityEngine, and QT Modeler, you’ll find the patterns and connections to answer the DoD’s needs. Your visualization skills will come in handy as you build threat assessments, terrain analysis, 3D visualizations, and blast simulations to make sure warfighters have the timely information they need. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop workflows. This is an opportunity to build your experience in geospatial analytics and 3D visualization while developing products to improve the DoD. Join us as we turn data into knowledge to support our warfighters and inform our nation's leaders.

Empower change with us.
