Have you ever used an atlas to find information on a country? Read maps printed in newspapers and magazines? Used the Internet to find driving directions or the navigation system in a car? Then you have interacted with geospatial technology, in particular a geographic information system (GIS). A GIS is most often associated with maps, however, this is only one way you can work with geographic data in a GIS. A GIS is a comprehensive database tied to features on the earth’s surface, with an integrated set of tools for querying, analyzing, and displaying geographic information. It is an “Information System for Geography? a “window into the database?to support queries, analysis, and editing of the information about the surface of the earth.

GISs are rapidly gaining recognition as the primary means of dealing with information stored on maps. GIS careers exist in every imaginable discipline, with many applications in resource and environmental management, commercial business and marketing, urban and regional planning, defense, map production, research, and beyond.

Geographic Information Systems (Certificate)

Course Format: Online / Virtual Classroom / Webinar
School/Trainer: Northeastern University College of Professional Studies
  V

A Geographic Information System (GIS) combines layers of data to give needed information on specific locations. Such a system can map environmental sensitivities or geological features, or can report on how best to speed emergency personnel to an accident or crime scene. Current fields using GIS include healthcare, public safety, environmental management, transportation and operations technology, real estate, and public utilities.

The Geographic Information Systems Graduate Certificate program provides hands-on training to give students the necessary skills and understanding to apply GIS competently and effectively. As a result of the certificate curriculum, students will be well versed in GIS theory, will have practical hands-on exposure to GIS software and hardware, will understand the representation of data in both mapped and tabular forms, and will know how to plan and construct spatial databases.
