Title: Stream Mapping/Hydrology GPS Specialist
Location: Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Description:

The AmeriCorps recruit will work 40 hours per week on a Monday through Thursday schedule (4/10). Primary duties include researching, developing, presenting, and evaluating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) data used for water and hydrology resource management in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Use of GIS and other design systems and software assist managers in making resource decisions that affect the park. The member will assist planners and resource managers in creating and evaluating data used by the park to ensure National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance as well as effective use and management of spatial and non-spatial data in support of park fisheries and water quality management operations. The member will also assist park staff in integrating planning and maintenance GIS data in other aspects of park operations, Wildlife, Fisheries Management, and Hydrology. This includes collection, development and deployment of data which supports visitor services such as campground facilities, Emergency Action Plans (EAP), trail maintenance, emergency spill response, real-time wildlife tracking, Search and Rescue, Cultural Resource Preservation, Environmental Impact Statements, and transportation planning. The goal of this project is to provide the park with a comprehensive inventory and assessment of park water resources. The focus of this project will be off-trail assessment of stream and stream corridor habitat assessment for the purpose of defining park streams for fisheries and water quality management. Most of the project time will involve navigation in some of the most difficult, steep, and dense vegetation areas of the park performing GPS stream assessments where no person has ever seen them before.

Title: Direct Hire Authority Research Assistant (GIS Intern)
Location: Loveland, CO

Description:

The GIS Intern will work independently to create a user-friendly geo-referenced database system to store, manage and link to Natural Resources Division geographic data and documentation. This is a living GIS database that encompasses lands data sets, cultural resource data sets, and project data sets (including but not limited to land use authorizations). Some of the information used to develop the database is existing and some would have to be imported from other GIS sources. An existing numbering system, with unique designations for projects and sub-projects is already in use and would be continued into this system. A user needs assessment survey completed in 2010 will provide some basic information. Deliverables include an updated user needs assessment, data structure design, graphical user interface in ArcGIS, data dictionary, and the geo-referenced database. This rigorous internship is the first phase of a four-phase project. Project work will be conducted in an office setting and does not include field work.
