Geospatial Information Science

Explore the World Through Precision: Unleashing the Power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Marshall’s Cutting-Edge Geography Department Program!

What is Geospatial Information Science (GIScience)? In a nutshell, GIScience is about using mapped data to solve problems and make better decisions.

A degree in geography from Marshall University is an excellent preparation for becoming a GIS analyst because it provides a strong foundation in the spatial analysis, data management, and cartography skills needed in GIS, as well as an understanding of the physical and human geography that underlies the data. This prepares students to work with the complex data sets used in GIS and to apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems in fields such as environmental science, urban planning, and business. Additionally, the interdisciplinary nature of geography makes graduates well-rounded and adaptable to a variety of industries, which is crucial in a rapidly changing job market. Our GIS program prepares students for success in this field, with a curriculum that includes courses in cartography, GIS, remote sensing, and spatial analysis, as well as opportunities for hands-on experience through internships and research projects.

The list of industry and government applications of GIS is limitless: precision farming, archaeological site inventory, transportation and urban planning for sustainability, wildlife tracking, self-driving cars, new business locations to maximize profitability, utility line mapping and maintenance, supply chain and logistics, pollution modeling, crime mapping, military intelligence and operations, disaster prevention and mitigation, renewable energy site selection, forest health, pandemic tracking, emergency services response, oil and gas drilling, local tax assessor maps, surveying, and the list goes on…

The Geography Department offers a wide variety of courses in Geographic Information Systems and Technology (GIST), including GIS, Remote Sensing (RS) and related geospatial technologies such as drones and GPS/GNSS.  Your BS degree in Geography with a GIScience Area of Emphasis will include training with GIScience technologies and prepares your for a wide range of jobs in many industries.   Earn your degree in the classroom or 100% online!
