Wisconsin Geospatial News

Looking for a geospatial job?

One of the most popular services offered by the State Cartographer’s Office is our geospatial jobs page. Since 2001, we’ve posted nearly 1,200 jobs geospatial jobs located in Wisconsin or surrounding states. The service has grown over the years as more employers became aware of our site, and technology made it easier for us to proactively seek out opportunities posted elsewhere.

Interestingly, our geospatial jobs page is by far the most popular page on our site, accounting for 25% of our total Web site traffic over the last six months.


The number of jobs we’ve posted over the last five years has mirrored the overall economy. Looking at our list of archived jobs, the low point was in 2009, with a noticeable gain in 2010 and 2011. Oddly enough, we’ve posted exactly the same number of jobs in 2011 (to date) as we did in 2010.
