This person will work independently in collaboration with a small team to maintain and update GIS data schemas for DoD installation management to ensure they meet overall DoD and Services business and management requirements and to improve interoperability with other GIS, DoD Business Systems (such as real property and utilities sustainment management), and industry data standards. This position will involve reviewing and analyzing geospatial data schemas and standards/guidance and developing recommendations for improvements to schemas and standards. This person will brief these recommendations to working groups and will work with SMEs and stakeholders to ensure their requirements are recorded and met.

This person will work with Component representatives and SMEs to update and improve the SDSFIE Vector schema and to develop future versions of SDSFIE-V. This person will also create materials for and facilitate working group meetings as needed to develop schema changes and to better understand community requirements for GIS data.

This person will assist the SDSFIE PM in developing Component adaptations of the SDSFIE-V Gold schema as needed, and will provide migration support for Components moving between schema versions as needed. This person will support the SDSFIE Team in testing models and tools, will attend working group meetings to stay informed on model, guidance, and tool changes, and will provide working group briefings as required.
