The GIS intern will perform beginning technical GIS work such as inventory gathering along county bikeways and highways, maintaining spatial data, and map creation. The engineering intern will gain experience in beginning level engineering work such as surveying, performing basic construction inspections, conducting field and laboratory tests on construction materials, and collecting traffic data for traffic studies.
