Based on community and stakeholder feedback and labor market analyses, SWTWC concluded that the formation of a GIS Training Initiative for tribal populations will have both educational and economic merit by fostering new career pipelines for both urban and rural youth and collecting data related to road safety, transportation, and cultural metrics within tribal lands.
This action plan focuses on developing a training program that engages tribal populations interested in a career with Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) skills and that can be used to build a cadre of skilled GIS professionals in tribal populations. Additionally, this action plan will result in data collection opportunities for road safety, transportation, and cultural metrics within particular regions of interest.
