You'll develop a wide variety of knowledge in areas such as advanced spatial analysis, geovisualisation, policy applications of GIS in practice, and thematic mapping and cartogram creation.

The course has a strong applied emphasis and draws upon the extensive expertise of teaching staff in both departments. This means that in addition to developing strong analytical and technical skills using GIS software, you'll be immersed in the practical applications of GIS and its potential to solve real world problems.
