Brief Summary of ProposalThe Department of Geography and Planning proposes the creation of a graduate-level certificate in Geographic Information Sciences. The geographic information sciences (GISci) encompass a variety of powerful new tools that greatly improve our ability to collect, store, manage, analyze, and utilize information regarding the features of the Earth's surface and to combine these with other types of economic, social, and environmental information. This program of professional and scientific education is intended to enhance abilities in data handling, analysis and graphic communication of simple and complex geographic data and information. It is designed to provide graduate-level instruction in GISci concepts and methods to students from a wide spectrum of disciplines.
