Overview

Spatial Data Science is an emerging field that combines art and science to explore geographical data through visual technologies.

A wide range of industries use Geographic Information Science (GIS) to give alternative analysis of data through digital cartography, geomapping, and other visual data interfaces, which help us to see long-term or real-time effects on the world around us, or to predict potential outcomes.

This major will give you foundational skills in data capture, GIS, computational modelling, and practical experience applying these to real-world applications.
