UK Geospatial Sciences Courses

Gain a thorough scientific grounding and understanding of remote sensing and professional training in geospatial technology

Geospatial science is the study of the Earth's physical and biological features and the space within and around it. Geospatial scientists collect, monitor and analyse data based on a location, using it to focus on global issues such as climate change and the increasingly harsh and extreme environment.

Geospatial sciences students will learn how to extensively analyse natural hazards, landscapes and regional issues via practical and project-based learning. Modules broadly include capturing 3D modules, data analysis and web and mobile GIS programming.
