Geospatial Management Competency Model

The Geospatial Management Competency Model (GMCM) specifies 74 essential competencies and 18 competency areas that characterize the work of most successful managers in the geospatial industry. The GMCM is an element of the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration’s (DOLETA’s) Competency Modeling Initiative.

In 2010, DOLETA issued a Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) that specifies the foundational (Tiers 1-3), industry-wide (Tier 4), and industry sector-specific (Tier 5) expertise characteristic of the various occupations that comprise the geospatial industry (http://www.careeronestop.org/CompetencyModel/pyramid.aspx?GEO=Y). Descriptions of individual geospatial occupations, including occupation-specific competencies and job requirements (Tiers 6-8), are published in DOLETA’s O*NET occupation database (http://www.onetonline.org/). The GMCM corresponds to Tier 9 of the GTCM (highlighted in green above).

The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association’s (URISA’s) qualifications to organize the GMCM effort include its 50-year history as one of the founding organizations of the GIS profession, its successful organization of the GIS Certification Institute and the URISA Leadership Academy, and its healthy working relationships with other professional and scientific associations in the geospatial field through the Coalition on Geospatial Organizations (COGO).
