About Geographical Information Science at Postgraduate Science at Leicester

Geographic Information (GI) plays an increasingly important role in many areas of our lives: environmental protection, business and marketing, communications, forecasting, modelling, agriculture, and local and regional planning.

Understanding GI systems (the software tools) and GI science (the technical discipline) is essential for effective management and analysis of spatial data. Working alongside industry partners, the course comprises four core modules plus four option modules (selected from a larger pool) and a dissertation.

You will learn key skills in: using a range of GI software; scientific programming; dealing with the growth in data from social media and the internet; and, analysing spatial data in the broader context of data science. Alongside the core modules, you'll have the opportunity to specialise in areas such as environmental health, remote sensing and earth observation, visualisation, and field data capture.
