Profile

Cartographer Recent Graduate Duties: Integrating hydrographic data with high resolution elevation information created as part of the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) to enable modeling of phenomena such as flood events, drought, contaminant transport, and many other applications. Analyzing software and database systems and developing recommendations as appropriate for technical modifications. Analyzing geospatial products with the object of improving consistency between products and delivery mechanisms in different data themes. Estimating the costs associated with new product development, including contracting for data acquisition.

Qualification and Experience

Qualifications: The candidate should be a recent graduate who has completed, within the previous two years, an Associate's, Bachelor's, Masters, professional, doctorate, vocational or technical degree or certificate from a qualifying educational institution such as an accredited technical or vocational school; a two- or four-year college or university; a graduate or professional school (e.g., law school, medical school); or a post-secondary home school curriculum.
OR
Must be currently enrolled in a qualifying degree program as described above AND expect to complete your degree requirements no later than May 2018.

Should have a degree in cartography; or a major that included or was supplemented by at least 30 semester hours in cartography and/or directly related science, and related mathematics. Such course work includes, cartography, astronomy, geodesy, photogrammetry, physical and geological oceanography, computer science, land surveying, geophysics, physical geography, and remote sensing. The 30 semester hours must have included at least 6, but no more than 15, semester hours of college level, non-business mathematics or statistics (i.e. college-level algebra, trigonometry, calculus, or scientific mathematics or statistics requiring equivalent college-level courses as prerequisites);
OR
Equivalent combination of education and experience - courses equivalent to a major in cartography, or a minor that included or was supplemented by at least 30 semester hours in cartography, and/or directly related science, and related mathematics, as shown above, PLUS appropriate experience and/or additional education for a total of 4 years. The education or combined education and experience must be comparable in type, scope and thoroughness to that acquired through successful completion of a 4-year course of study as described above.

For GS-07: In addition to the basic education requirement stated above, must meet at least one of the following to qualify for the GS-07 level:
One year of appropriate specialized experience that is equivalent to at least the GS-05 level in the Federal service. Examples of qualifying specialized experience include performing a series of sequential tasks/steps for standardized or prescribed operations involving one or more stages of the map or chart making process (e.g., orienting stereo plotting instruments to develop expertise, compiling less difficult map or chart manuscripts, or drafting and scribing maps or charts);
OR
Successful completion of 1 year of successfully completed graduate level education (18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours or the equivalent) in cartography or other directly related field of study if it provided the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to do the work of this position;
OR
Superior Academic Achievement based on undergraduate study
OR
Equivalent combination of successfully completed graduate level education, as described above, and professional experience, as described above.

For GS-09: In addition to the basic education requirement stated above, applicants must meet at least one of the following to qualify for the GS-09 level:
One year of appropriate specialized experience that is equivalent to at least the GS-07 level in the Federal service. Examples of qualifying specialized experience include evaluating available source material pertinent to charting areas of regular bottom characteristics and simple topography. Knowledge of cartographic concepts, theories and principles, methods and practices and skill sufficient to complete routine production processes improvement projects. This work experience would have involved following established methods and procedures, or detailed instructions; using some judgment in applying basic principles and procedures, and would have required a good general working knowledge of the principles and the theories of cartography;
OR
Successful completion of 2 years of progressively higher-level graduate education (36 semester hours or 54 quarter hours) leading to a master's degree in cartography or other directly related field of study or master's or equivalent graduate degree in cartography or other directly related field of study if it provided the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to do the work of the position to be filled;
OR
Equivalent combination of successfully completed progressive graduate level education as described above that is beyond the first year of graduate study and professional experience, as described above.

For GS-11: In addition to the basic education requirement stated above, applicants must meet at least one of the following to qualify for the GS-11 level:
One year of appropriate specialized experience that is equivalent to at least the GS-09 level in the Federal service. Examples of qualifying specialized experience includes independent responsibility to research, analyze, select and prepare photographic and cartographic materials, conduct studies to determine the design characteristics, limitation, and application of program requirements for a well-defined study or for a phase of a larger study that required the planning and carrying out of cartography work.
