Oh, mapmaker, mapmaker, make me a map — the need for people who gather and interpret geographic information to make maps will bloom by 30 percent by 2024. The much-faster-than-average growth is driven by the need for maps in everything from managing government lands to the ever-growing number of mobile and web-based mapping tools… Cartographers and photogrammetrists make good money: a median annual salary of $60,930 (as of May 2014). And they’re in high demand in some highly desirable areas: Denver, Colorado; Portland, Oregon; Washington, D.C.; and Anaheim, California.
