Spatial data is integrated into our everyday lives and employed in a range of professions. We are all integrated into a complex web of movement, place, and discovery, whether we’re navigating across town or interpreting maps of election results.
UO geographers use spatial data technologies to focus on remote sensing of the changing environment, climate-change analysis, web-mapping, cartography and data visualization, spatial cognition, and spatial patterns in public health.
In the data science domain area of geography, you will be studying how spatial data can revolutionize business, nonprofit, and government worlds.
You will take three geography domain core courses and four courses from the electives menu.
