Every day, millions of decisions worldwide are powered by geographical information systems (GIS). Everything from predicting climate change to analysing crime patterns requires the ability to connect data with geography and understand how each can change the other. There is a growing need to not only create and understand the data, but also to manage and visualise it using the latest GIS software. Our expert academics will train you in the latest practices, using new and innovative equipment including a terrestrial laser scanner and virtual reality theatre. Their research will inform your studies as you produce your own independent research project.

Whether you choose to study full time on campus, or part time via distance learning, through your studies and independent research you will acquire the advanced skills and knowledge to pursue your passion and enhance your career options.
