    Course description

    This Masters programme focuses on the multi-disciplinary science concerned with the development and application of geographical information (GI) technologies. GI technologies are increasingly applied in everyday life, with, for example, the introduction of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Google Earth. Core GI technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing (RS), have had a long history of application in industries such as planning, agriculture, forestry, utilities, transportation, and various government and private-sector environmental agencies. The application areas for GI technologies are very widespread.

    This programme provides the theoretical foundation and practical skills that are relevant for pursuing a career in a GI Science related field.
