  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Intern (Dawson County )

    Location: Dawson County

    City: Dawsonville

    Department: Planning and Development

    Contact: Jameson Kinley

    Phone Number: (706) 344-3501

    Email: jkinley@dawsoncounty.org

    Description

    Dawson County has three main GIS projects for which they are seeking intern assistance. Both projects require a lot of hours manually looking at and collecting GIS data; perfect for someone with basic spatial knowledge of how GIS works. These are great projects for a student looking for basic entry level GIS experience and possibly school credit.

    The first is the Culvert Collection and Analysis. Dawson County has over 1100 culverts crossing under county right-of-ways. These have to be maintained by the limited staff of the Dawson County Public Works. In an effort to be proactive, Dawson County conducted a Culvert Assessment in 2011. The county is now looking to build and expand on that assessment. With the Culvert Collection and Analysis project, Dawson County should be able to pinpoint areas of concern and even predict flooding events that could cause damage and overtop roads. The project will require the intern to drive to various locations within the county. He or she will be using Arc Collector (of the ESRI Suite) on a phone or tablet in conjunction with a sub-meter GPS Unit. Upon visual inspection, he or she will determine exact location, pipe length, pipe diameter, pipe material, maintenance condition, and elevation of up and downstream, as well as take a picture of inlets and outlets.

    The second is the NG911 Formatting and QC (Quality Control) of our existing database. E911 is required by the State of Georgia to upgrade its emergency system to NG911 by 2020. This system relies on GIS data for accurate and updated information. While there are numerous datasets that should be collected and integrated into this system, the two most critical layers that need to be addressed are the road centerline and address points. Dawson County has an accurate road centerline file, but before it can be integrated in the NG911 system, the roads need to be split at every intersection. Intersection nodes need to be added and attributed for each location. Then, address ranges need to be added for each road centerline segment and quality controlled. There may need to be field checks performed to be completely accurate. Address points can be verified and quality controlled at this point as well.


    The intern will also assist with basic maintenance and update of current zoning maps.

    Qualifications

    The ideal candidate has basic spatial knowledge of how GIS works, is detail oriented, has general knowledge of Microsoft Office, and has a valid driver’s license. There will be on the job training for equipment and programs used for the position.
