Geospatial analyses are a rapidly growing approach to problem solving across a wide array of environmental and earth science applications. The Geospatial Analysis certificate program covers high-demand skills in:

  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Remote sensing
  • Unoccupied Aircraft Systems (UAS/drones)
  • Data analytics
  • Modeling


From marine science to surficial earth processes, from environmental economics to environmental epidemiology, from landscape ecology to conservation planning; all of these areas benefit, even require, the powerful analytical and presentation abilities of geospatial technologies for mapping out today's environmental solutions. Geospatial technologies include Geographic Information Systems (GIS), satellite remote sensing, field surveying and Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

In addition to providing a more focused and deeper treatment of these skills, the certificate program will provide documented recognition for mastery of these tools. Students completing this program will be highly sought after in both analytical and management positions.
