Summer Job at the Hub: GIS Research Aid

ASU Library seeks a talented, organized, and enthusiastic GIS Research Aide (Student Worker III) to join the Map and Geospatial Hub for a short-term, project-based assignment. This is a temporary, part-time opportunity to work on a mapping and GIS research project related to the greater Grand Canyon region.

The GIS Research Aide (Student Worker III) will make important contributions to the project by digitizing, georeferencing, and post-processing multiple hard-copy maps of the region and generating (editing) new GIS data layers from the digitized, georeferenced map products.

Work also involves migrating digital maps and related geospatial materials to the web using ArcGIS Online and related software tools. More generic research activities are involved too, such as organizing and categorizing digital and physical reference materials, performing basic spreadsheet data entry, compiling detailed metadata tables, and producing standardized, well-formatted reference lists (i.e., bibliographies / works cited) using citation software.

This is a temporary, part-time position available for Summer 2018.
