The fundamental reason this classification exists is to prepare and maintain maps and related records for property assessment purposes. Employees in this class perform the majority of the division’s cadastral mapping work, to include the more difficult and complex mapping projects. The work responsibilities are creating and maintaining cadastral maps; performing Mapping Division administrative duties; and assisting the public, government agencies, surveyors, real estate professionals, attorneys and co-workers in researching parcel data and answering questions relating to real property ownership and assessment. The Mapper classification is distinguished from the Mapping Technician classification in that the Mapper performs highly technical mapping work. The Mapper operates with a wide range of independent judgment under the general direction of the Mapping Coordinator.
