Geographic Information Science

Academic Level
Graduate, Undergraduate

Geographic Information Science (GIS) students develop an in-depth understanding of spatial analysis and the art of digital map-making that complements discipline-specific knowledge. GIS has become a key approach to an increasingly large number of endeavors, from land-use planning and environmental management to epidemiology through law enforcement. It relies on geospatial technologies and research that include internet mapping, in-vehicle navigation systems, digital cartography, imagery taken by airplanes and satellites, spatial analysis and modeling of social and natural processes, and visualization and data mining of complex information.
