Geographic Information System (GIS) is changing rapidly in recent years. Professional GIS software is moving from desktop to cloud service. New technologies such as Pictometry, and Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) are more widely used. GIS job market should have accordingly changed. In order to investigate the current GIS job requirements, a semi-auto software was developed to analyze web page and put each job’s requirements into a database. Finally, the collected data are analyzed to demonstrate the most current GIS job requirements.
