Geospatial Techniques

Geographers employ a number of different techniques for collecting, studying, and analyzing spatial data. These techniques include both quantitative and qualitative approaches, while also stressing important computer-centered technologies. Many students trained in these techniques go on to work in a number of different public and private industries, from planning departments to environmental assessment agencies to non-profit community based organizations.

Within the "techniques," we offer courses in the following areas:

  • GIScience
  • Remote Sensing
  • Cartography/geovisualization
  • Spatial Statistics
  • Field Methods
  • Qualitative Methods
