MAPPS is once again conducting its Salary and Non-Cash Benefits Survey. This is the most comprehensive compensation survey in the geospatial profession. It is the best way to benchmark your firm's wage and income with others in the community.

The salary survey is one of the most requested documents by private sector firms when submitting salary information for procurement negotiations and by Human Resource managers to benchmark the benefits to the rest of the geospatial community. MAPPS members have said that this survey is invaluable and worth the cost of membership in the association.

The survey will be web based. It will be emailed to member firms beginning April 15.

In order to have a homogenous universe, the survey will only be sent to Regular Member Firms (US service and data firms).  Associate Members (hardware and software providers, consultants and non-US firms) will not participate in the survey, but will receive a free copy of the final report.  Regular Member Firms that complete the survey form will receive a free copy of the final report.

The final report will be available for purchase by Regular Member Firms that do not participate in the survey, and to non-members at a premium price.

A presentation on the survey results will be offered at the MAPPS Summer Conference, July 22 - 26, 2013 at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine.

The survey will be conducted by Compdata Surveys, an independent third party professional data collection company. Individual firm responses and data will be treated with complete confidence. No MAPPS staff or member will see any firm's information.

MAPPS Regular Member Firms are encouraged to participate in the survey. The better the response from the membership, the better the quality of the final data will be. 

Not a member of MAPPS? Join the association today! By joining, your firm is able to participate in the survey and receive a free copy of the final report.
