The skillset course sequence offered by the Center for Geospatial Information Science is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of current state-of-the-art technology in geospatial information science (GIS) and geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), through intensive training over a short time frame. The skill-set courses provide advanced training in key aspects of spatial analysis and data management, coupled with hands-on lab-based exercises across a diversity of devices, software libraries, systems, and data environments that emphasize “learning by doing”.
Kieera Stewart and Avery Furey, GIS majors in Geographical Sciences, served as student interns on a project to design a web map of child, youth, and family service providers for the Department of Family Services, Prince George's County, MD.
The MPS GEOINT program provides workforce-focused technical training that gives graduates the skills and expertise to lead new initiatives in the rapidly shifting landscape of GEOINT applications, data collection systems, analytic methods, and mission support.
We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2018 Admission (Deadline: July 26, 2018).
