The Program focuses on...
Extended training in the areas of Geographic Information Systems, Cartography and Remote Sensing in order to complement a major field of study.
Students learn the latest developments in data collection and analysis
techniques, aerial and space cameras and sensors, photographic materials and
reproductive processes, and mapping procedures, including computer mapping.
Successful completion of the Certificate Program requires the student to carry a
cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for undergraduates and 3.0 for graduates
in these five courses.
Required Courses (20 credit hours)
- GEO 4410 Cartography (4 hrs)
- GEO 4430 Geograph Information Systems (4 hrs)
- GEO 4440 Advanced GIS Applications (4 hrs)
- GEO 4100 Remote Sensing (3 hrs)
- GEO 4200 Remote Sensing Applications (3 hrs)
Students present a
portfolio of work accomplished during the completion of the five required GIS Certificate courses. In additions, students write a ten-page paper comparing and contrasting cartographic, remote sensing and geographic informaiton system methodology.
