Guide to Member Categories and Badges

The last time you browsed our members directory page , you may have noticed a sub-navigation which takes you to categories based on different member types.  If you are somewhat new to the network, you answered a question in your profile which allowed you to place yourself inside a category which describes your role in the geospatial industry.    That subnavigation looks like this:

 

Our goal and mission is to create an environment online which represents your roles in the real world as closely as possible.  Our other purpose for this categorization is to provide as much transparency in relation to the members on our network as possible so that its is not difficult to associate yourself with trustworthy professionals online.  We hope to recognize and celebrate real world authority and classify our members according to their hard earned experience.
