Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems Concentration


The Geographic Information Analysis Concentration prepares students to use a Geographic Information System (GIS) to analyze and communicate spatial relationships. GIS is a relatively new technology designed to collect, store, manage, analyze, and display spatial relationships between both similar and dissimilar features and their attributes. It is widely used for scientific investigations, natural resource management, infrastructure management, and development planning. Graduates of this program are also trained in the use of remote sensing data, GPS data collection, and image analysis software for employment opportunities in local, federal, and state government agencies, commercial consulting firms, and non-profit organizations.
