The University of Maryland (College Park) Center for Geospatial Information Science and the Department of Geographical Sciences are developing a new initiative to promote geospatial intelligence education and training in Maryland and the broader DC metropolitan area, one of the nation’s hubs for government and commercial geospatial intelligence operations and analysis. As part of this initiative, we seek an individual to teach in a new Master of Professional Studies in Geospatial Intelligence degree program that will be launched in 2017.
The skill-set course sequence at the UMD Center for Geospatial Information Science is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of current state-of-the-art in geospatial information science (GIS) and computational social science (CSS), through intensive training over a short time frame.
Geospatial Information Science (GI Science) is focused on the development of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that can support the representation and exploration of a diverse array of “spaces”. One of our primary foci is in building GIS across this wide array of systems, and in doing so from scratch. Learn more about or work to build next-generation GIS.
