The employment for cartographers and photogrammetrists is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2024. There are a number of factors that are contributing to this highly favorable outlook for cartographers and photogrammetrists. First, there is a growing need for updated maps for national security, management of natural resources, coordinating effective responses by government first responders and other emergency personnel to natural disasters, education, and local government planning. Second, the growing number of mobile and Web-based map products for individual consumers, companies, and government agencies also should result in new jobs for cartographers and photogrammetrists.
