Что я буду изучать?

Applied geographers use geographical knowledge and skills to form solutions to spatial problems. The courses that constitute the Certificate in Geographic Techniques provide students with both relevant training and general education. The certificate equips the student with marketable skills by providing a solid background in: cartography, quantitative methods, air photo interpretation, remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS). These courses demonstrate how spatially-referenced information can be manipulation to tackle a wide range of location-allocation problems. Knowledge of these skills can result in numerous public and private sector employment opportunities including: resource management, natural environment conservation, regional/urban land use planning and marketing analysis.

The courses required in this certificate are all inherently linked. The introductory courses provide the fundamentals of geographic inquiry. The cartography and quantitative methods courses give the student background in the use of statistics and computer-assisted mapping techniques. Air-photo interpretation and remote sensing likewise provide the student with additional spatial analytical skills. The GIS courses expand upon the spatial knowledge already learned and show how the use of geographic information systems can be used to assist in solving many contemporary problems in a wide variety of fields.

The requirements of the Certificate in Geographic Techniques are as follows:
