  • Identify gaps in geospatial information coverage and coordinate with collection entities to obtain and verify area-of-interest source data, ensuring it satisfies geospatial mission requirements for the generation of Essential Elements of Geospatial Information (EEGI).
  • Manage generation of EEGI to fill gaps in geospatial information coverage.
  • Serve as the tactical and technical advisor to the commander, staff and major subordinate commanders providing guidance on the use of geospatial engineers in support of full-spectrum operations.
  • Manage geospatial information and services on the geospatial enterprise server that provides the foundation for the COP for Army Battle Command Systems.

  • Direct and supervise system administration of geographic information systems on local and wide-area networks.
  • Direct and supervise technical geospatial engineer training within unit.
  • May be employed as a service school instructor or training developer/writer. Perform other officer-level duties essential to the mission of the assigned unit.
  • 35G (formerly 96D) Imagery Analyst - Now eligible to compete for 125D as secondary MOS to 350G. Indicate on DA Form 61 as second choice to MOS 350G.


Increasing joint operations have created a greater pool of applicants from other military branch services. Navy, Air Force and Marines should see below for equivalent MOSs. Other military branch services' applicants must come from a geography, GEOINT or analytical-related MOS with similar duties and skill sets. Applicants must demonstrate their qualifications through hard copies of documented experience (e.g., awards, certificates and performance evaluations).
