Everybody is different 1

Some interesting takeaways…

  • The average salary of survey respondents was $70,857 — an increase of 15% over the 2010 average of $61,540. This is not bad during a period where wage growth has been very slow across the economy.
  • Respondents spend an average of 70.8% of their time performing geospatial tasks.
  • GISPs (certified GIS professionals), on average, earned $10,000 more than non-GISPs. Do you have your GISP®?

The next GISP Exam Test period is scheduled for June 2-9, 2018.
