How long have you worked for OS?
After completing an undergraduate degree in History, I started at OS in January 2014. Although I studied history, OS has very supportive training programmes and I was soon proficient in all things “Geography”.
I began my career creating our digital maps as a remote sensing surveyor, and soon learned how to also create our super detailed orthorectified imagery using various software suites. I gathered experience using geospatial tools, software, methodologies, and in doing so demonstrated I was able to problem solve.
