What is Geographic Information Science?
This program offers specialized training in applied and theoretical geospatial techniques, including geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, and cartography. The program is designed to provide experience in quantitative spatial analysis through the use of geographic information systems, working with remotely sensed imagery and field-derived data, and effective communication through maps. The certificate serves as a supplement to standard degree programs. It provides essential training for those seeking careers in the geospatial technologies in both the public and private sector.
