GIS JOBS HELP!!!!!!!!!!!?

Which jobs in GIS (geographic information systems) does not require many mathematical skills??? Something that isn't too difficult but also pays well, thanks!!!


I am currently studying bachelor of GIS at university, i had mathematics 135 which involved algebra and trigonometry, i had passed that successfully and also had mathematics 146 which involved calculus, i had also passed that successfully, although i had to complete mathematics course i do not really enjoy doing it, if i had a choice to do the mathematics course i would choose not to. So pretty much not a big fan of maths, if i have to do it then i will.

    GIS professionals use GIS to visualize, analyze, and model systems to help in the planning and decision-making processes of their organizations. They make geographic information accessible to scientists, planners, decision makers, and the public.

    GIS careers typically include positions such as

    Cartographic designer

    Computer programmer

    Database administrator

    Project manager

    System administrator

    They also encompass business development, managerial, and administrative roles.

    GIS is often associated with making maps, but GIS professionals do much more than that. GIS is used to manage human activities. The ESRI Map Book Gallery illustrates through real-world examples the range of topics, activities, and locales to which GIS can be applied.

    It may get your foot in the door but a few university geography credits in say urban, land use and human geography wouldn't hurt.
