Learning Pathways - Geospatial Analysis


An emphasis in geospatial analysis and remote sensing is outstanding preparation for careers in private engineering and environmental companies, government agencies, and universities.  Geographic information systems have become the key means by which spatial data are organized, queried, analyzed, and displayed, and are becoming increasingly part of everyday life through such portals as Google Maps/Earth, online mapping, and digital navigation.  Students pursuing this pathway should endeavor to undertake coursework and experience in a wide spectrum of geospatial technologies.
