The Bachelor of Science degree program in Geographic Information Science (GISc) integrates Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology with applied research domains. The GISc program aims at producing high caliber graduates who are well trained in the technology, theory, and application of GIS and information systems. Students receive fundamental knowledge of human and physical geography, along with specific content in one of two systems: environmental systems or urban systems. GISc provides students a set of skills to manipulate, analyze, assess, and visualize data by way of digital maps and/or map imagery to solve problems in areas like urban and regional design, marketing and industrial location, transportation, precision agriculture, forestry, environmental systems, engineering, epidemiology, emergency services, crime analysis, and utilities.
