Geographic Information Systems Analyst, Mid

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 valuable information. If that sounds like you, we have an opportunity for you to use your geospatial analysis skills to transform the federal infrastructure and environment community.

As a Booz Allen geospatial analyst, you’ll be working with a team of analysts to extract meaning and context from a variety of vector and raster data sources. Using tools like ArcGIS you’ll find the patterns and connections to answer our Air Force client’s needs. Your visualization skills will come in handy as you build density graphics, heat maps, terrain analyses, formal reports, operation dashboards, and story maps to make sure stakeholders 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 client delivery, data gathering and analysis, presenting data backed findings to influencers while developing products to improve the federal government. Join us as we turn data into knowledge to inform our nation’s leaders.
