Geospatial Technology Department

What is Geospatial Technology? Geospatial Technology is the term that encompasses a broad range of technologies including Geographic Information Science (GISci), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry and more.

The Geospatial Technology program provides a broad background in GIS and GPS technologies with practical applications in municipal, industrial, natural resources management, and other fields. Course work consists of class and hands-on experience with GIS/GPS technologies, including running and modifying current GIS software, creating and manipulating GIS databases, and operating GPS technology.

Students can expect to find employment opportunities in wide range of areas such as local, state, and federal government agencies, as well as in a wide-range of related scientific and technical fields, such as agriculture; archeology; cartography; ecology; environmental sciences; forestry; geography; hydrology and water resources; transportation; urban planning and more.

Examples of student work: Spatial Distribution of Surface Water Nutrient Concentrations for Nine Sub-Watersheds in Haywood County. Presented at the 2006 SERUG conference.

Other examples of faculty and student involvement in local community initatives through GIS and GPS support: Sustainable Development Projects with Haywood Waterways

The Geospatial Technology program has Trimble Certified Trainers and ESRI Authorized Instructors on staff.
