Certificate Overview: Geospatial information science (GIScience) is the interdisciplinary field that studies the foundations of geographic concepts, and the design and application of geographic information systems (GIS) and allied geospatial technologies. This GIScience certificate is designed for professionals seeking advanced analytical and GIS programming skills to become competitive in the computational and software design aspects of GIS and mapping technology. Exposure to the basics of web-mapping, Python-focused GIS programming, and advanced geospatial analysis will prepare students for a wide variety of computational GIS jobs across a wide spectrum of professional settings in industry and academia. The expected time to complete this certificate is 9 to12 months.

Certificate Learning Outcomes:

Upon certificate completion, students will be able to: define and discuss the major theoretical issues of and emerging trends affecting the computational representation, visualization, and analysis of geographic information; correctly identify problems and decision-making situations that require the use of geospatial data and GIS technology; demonstrate ability to think spatially, engage in spatial analysis using GIS software, and interpret and communicate about geographic patterns to support geoscientific analysis and decision making; demonstrate practical knowledge of GIS software for mapping, database management, and geospatial analysis; explain and apply basic object-oriented programming concepts and best practices in geospatial programming; demonstrate knowledge of when and how to use web-mapping technologies (e.g., JavaScript, ArcGIS Online, Map Box) for creating and sharing interactive web-maps; apply the Python programming language and select libraries for automating to increase efficiency, accuracy, and repeatability of complex GIS workflows.

Opportunities upon Completion: According to the GIS Certification Institute, the number of professionals engaged in the geospatial industry will exceed 675,000 after 2020. However, a large proportion of such professionals use geospatial hardware and software but lack the knowledge to customize geospatial software and engage in advanced geospatial analysis. This certificate is designed to address this gap in the geospatial workforce. After certificate completion, professionals will be able to apply for better paying and more challenging positions, such as GIS analyst and (basic level) GIS developer. This certificate will also provide professionals the required analytical and computational foundations for acquiring further expertise in (geospatial) data science.
