2. GIS planners:
Their task is a strategic one. The main objective is helping the decision-makers in managing the land and optimizing the costs to the minimum possible wage, especially for the government, in small projects like locating the best site for a new wastewater treatment plant near to a city, or interesting ones like planning for the urban expansion in the next 10 years to accommodate with the rise of population in an area. Those guys use a lot of spatial analyst tools using advanced GIS software, which means this job requires having the needed experience in terms of manipulating the different type of data and also using multiple-criteria scenarios. The salary for this kind of GIS jobs can range from 60k to 70k $ a year due to the complexity of the tasks.
