Geographic Information Science

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.
