1371 — Cartographic Technician Series***

This series covers one-grade interval technical positions that supervise, lead, or perform nonprofessional work that requires a practical knowledge of the processes, practices, methods, and techniques involved in constructing new or revised maps, charts, and related cartographic products. Cartographic technicians supervise or perform precompilation tasks such as reviewing source materials, extending basic geodetic control networks, and providing input for plotting map projections and collars. In addition, they perform drafting, digitizing, integrating, and editing/reviewing in connection with cartographic products, and may carry out stereoscopic photogrammetric and/or monoscopic compilation. Work within this series does not require full professional knowledge equivalent to that represented by completion of a bachelor’s degree in cartography or a related science.
