Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology is widely used in business, industry, government, and education. This graduate certificate is designed for students in a variety of disciplines that involve spatial analysis, mapping, and interpretation of geospatial data. Students who complete the program will have a solid GIS foundation that spans the collection, management, analysis, interpretation, and display of geospatial data using geographic information systems. Students gain practical experience by completing projects that require the use of sophisticated GIS functions. Finally, they learn how to develop and implement customized GIS applications.
