Unity College's 100% online Geographic Information Science (GIScience) programs are big data visualized and put into the environmental context that matters. Big picture thinking also means thinking big about how we influence the environment and the world.
Often, environmental scientists can analyze and interpret environmental data while GIS scientists can manage and manipulate data. Unity College's 100% online Environmental GIScience programs will prepare students to meld the two by integrating spatial technologies and environmental information. Students will be expected to be highly inquisitive about the ramifications, motivations, and cost of global responses to environmental issues while exploring their own individual ideas.
The central distinguishing feature of the online GIS programs are to focus on understanding the environment through spatial technologies.
