GIS Salary Survey Results

Posted on July 27, 2011. Filed under: .NET, AGIS Server API for Flex, ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Server for Silverlight, ESRI, GeoSpatial Training Services, JavaScript, Open Source GIS, OpenLayers, PostGIS, Python |

We’re keeping the survey open through July 31st.  If you haven’t already participated in the survey please take a few moments to do so and forward this to your colleagues.

To date we have had 731 respondents.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • 40% of respondents list their job titles as either GIS Analyst or GIS Technician.  16% are GIS Managers/Coordinators/Directors, and 6% GIS Developers/Programmers.
  • 40% of respondents have 10 years of experience or greater.
  • 43% have a Master’s degree or higher.  Should You Get a Master’s Degree in GIS?
  • 70% of respondents are male.  I suppose this is better than it was 10 years ago, but we really need to attract more women to the field.
  • 41% of you are between the ages of 30-39.  24%  are between the ages of 40-49.  Less than 2% are above the age of 60.
  • Salaries appear to be widely dispersed with 29% between $50,000-$70,000/year.  I was surprised to see almost 13% below $20,000/year.
  • ESRI is far and away the most popular platform with 93% of respondents indicating this as one of their primary platforms.  This question allows more than one platform to be selected.  Open Source GIS software came in second at 14%.  I suspect this will grow quite a bit in the coming years.
  • Primary programming languages in use include .NET (55%), Python (50%) , JavaScript (27%), Java (20%), and Flex (17%).  You can learn more about Python, JavaScript, and Flex through our training classes.
