Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In collaboration with the US Department of Labor, the National Geospatial Technology Center is updating the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) so that it can remain relevant for the geospatial industry. Given the impending update to the Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIS&T) Body of Knowledge by the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), and the move by the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) to base their exam upon Tier 4 of the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM), it is time to review the GTCM competencies. This session will begin with a review of the GTCM, followed by a review of input on suggested updates garnered from the geospatial community, to prepare the session participants for an open discussion on GTCM updates.
