Hello everyone, I've recently moved here to SA with my wife and am in the process of job hunting. I'm looking for something in the GIS field and thought I would ask around here to see if anyone knows of any immediate openings in the area. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Try San Antonio Water System, San Antonio River Authority, and Edwards Aquifer Authority. I took GIS in the past and absolutely hated it but I remember those three were very interested in getting GIS people.

There are folks on Security Hill at Lackland that do GIS work for the organizations that reside there, mostly in the intel arena. Feel free to DM me for an email address if you want to shoot a resume my way.

I worked GIS back in the early 90s, back when ArcInfo (from ESRI) and ERDAS were the big two (Arc was raster where ERDAS was vector mapping programs). It was a pain to use AML but we were able to do some cool stuff.

GIS systems have advanced considerably in the past 20 years, and most of the develop we do these days is with GoogleEarth.

Cheers! M2

Thanks for the replies and suggestions folks, it is much appreciated! I love these boards and have been lurking here for the last few months. Makes it so much easier to get a feel for what's happening in the area for a newcomer.
