Geospatial science is a discipline that focuses on using technology to collect data and understanding how it interacts with people, places, and landscapes. People who hold certificates and degrees in geospatial science are ready to work in a variety of industries such as natural and physical sciences, utilities management, crime prevention, business efficiency, city planning, and web application design.
This broad discipline includes GIS (using software to examine the distribution and interaction of recorded data), cartography (the art of creating maps with data), remote sensing (the science of collecting data without coming into contact with the landscape), GPS (the science and skill of collecting data utilizing place located by satellite), web map applications (creating maps with the intention of distribution and interaction with a much wider community than a static print map will reach), database design and management (the science of organizing data for rapid retrieval), land survey (collecting very accurate data utilizing hands-on equipment), and photogrammetry (creating accurate maps and measurements from remotely-sensed images).
