We all have access to terabytes of free, spatial data — if we know how to access and use it. Learn how to use the equipment and software needed to create maps and other geospatial products.
Why Study Geospatial Analysis?
Geospatial analysis is the collection, analysis and visualization of spatial data. Doing geospatial analysis requires the ability to use software – including geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing – and may require skills with equipment and hardware that integrate with that software, including sensors and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Through USD's geospatial analysis program, you'll gain these skills and set yourself up for success in the future.
With courses such as Remote Sensing, Introduction to Geographical Information Systems, Data Analysis/Decision Making and Undergrad Research/Scholarship, this program offers you a rich education in geospatial analysis that will provide you with the analytical and technical skills you need to be a leader in this area.
