Geographic Information Science is an interdisciplinary field
focusing on the computational, cognitive, and visual
representation and analysis of geospatial information. It encompasses topics
such as geographic information systems (GIS),
environmental remote sensing (RS), cartography, spatial statistics,
and spatial cognition. A related focus is the application of
geospatial technologies and methods to fields such as
archaeology, demography, and hydrology.
Temple University offers a broad array of Geographic Information
Science resources, including GIS and RS software,
dedicated high-quality computing labs, and a range of courses. Research activities address both theoretical and applied
topics. Browse the links above for more information.
