How to Select a GIS School
Applying to a GIS (geographical information system) school assumes the student understands the basics of mapping and cartography, as well as computer technology. Students can choose a school in a few ways.
Consider the following also when looking for GIS schools:
- The first option would be finding a program dedicated to GIS, though these aren't widely available
- The second would be to find a geography or cartography program at a university or college and then minor in a technical field like management information systems or take elective courses in GIS software.
- Because this program combines geographic and mapping knowledge with computer skills, students may want to verify the availability of certain software application at the school.
