Geo-Spatial Information Systems & Data Science (GIS)
Geo-Spatial Information Systems (GIS) refers to information systems that allow for the integration, analysis, storage, editing and sharing of different types of data. This data is then brought together using sophisticated technology to present a more holistic picture of a particular geographic region. Students in this program will be exposed to cutting-edge data analytics practices through the use of industry-grade technology at West Chester University.
The opportunities are endless with a background in GIS.
