We are seeking an enthusiastic and capable individual to fulfil the role of Geospatial Processor for our successful and established client is based in Leeds. This is a 6 month FTC with a salary of £12ph. This position would suit a graduate looking to gain experience in the field.

The successful applicant is required to execute established workflows creating products from a range of datasets. This includes LiDAR, imagery and power network asset information. Using a range of data, the successful applicant will need to complete digital workflows using PLS-CADD software. Examples include modelling transmission lines, producing reports and staking tables. Using meteorological data and aerial imagery.

Day to day duties and responsibilities include:

Remote Sensing Workflows

Produce fit for purpose, spatially aligned, geospatial datasets to meet a specified level of accuracy, including both corridor and wide areas
Employ image processing and enhancement techniques to improve the visual aesthetics of imagery products
Assess and report on the spatial accuracy of the processed products
Under guidance, be able to transform datasets according to project requirements
Generate and compile metadata using existing templates in a comprehensive but concise manner using technical vocabulary. Mapping, Classification, Spatial Modelling and Asset Record workflows:

Efficiently classify LiDAR datasets using a range of contextual data sources according to specified schema's
Produce topographic maps from LiDAR and imagery datasets to specified schemas and mapping scales
Produce LiDAR-derived spatial modelling products according to specified parameters
Process and present asset imagery according to client requirements
Import data into PLS-CADD ready for modelling
Carry out Quality Control checks on the products produced PLS CADD workflows:

Model Transmission lines within the PLS CADD environment to provided specifications
Produce Staking tables & PI reports for Meteorological Data, Forward-Looking Imagery in Meteorological Data, Forward-Looking Imagery & Temperature Calculations
Produce Meteorological data independently
Produce Temperature calculations to pre-defined templates
Conduct simple transmission/distribution asset assessments against a set of defined criteria
Carry out Quality Control checks on the products produced from these workflows. Prerequisites:

Ideally, a tertiary level qualification or equivalent in a relevant discipline,
Alternatively, good A-Level and/or GCSE qualifications, an appropriate aptitude for working with spatial datasets and software packages, a good work ethic, and an ability to learn.

Expected Discipline Knowledge and Skillset:

Working knowledge of standard software packages (Bentley MicroStation, TerraSolid, QGIS, PLS CADD, Global Mapper, Arc GIS, Excel) and ability to work independently with large geospatial datasets
Good understanding of the Remote sensing systems (aerial LiDAR and imaging systems and terrestrial survey instruments) and their practical applications
Awareness of geodetic concepts such as datum, projections and units, recognising the importance of using the correct coordinate system and the impacts of not doing so. Familiarity with standard coordinate systems and ability to identify these from coordinate system definitions
A basic understanding of electrical transmission and distribution network concepts and differences between various assets (conductors, towers and other features) Hours: Rotating shift pattern using a 9-day rotation: 6 days on (08:00 - 16:30); 3 days off.
