Geospatial Information Science for Natural Resources Minor

Geographic information systems, global positioning systems, and remote sensing are key tools in the 21st century workforce. Using these tools, scientists, managers, and policy makers can represent many different data across a landscape to significantly enhance research, decision making, and management.

The Geospatial Information Science for Natural Resources minor provides students with fundamental geospatial skills in natural resource science and management.

This minor emphasizes use of these tools in natural resources and is perfect for students who want to  gain technical skills and to increase their employment potential. Because geospatial tools are so important for many different disciplines due to their ability to adapt to nearly any application, the minor will touch on a broad array of natural resources subject areas.
