The Geomatics course will offer students further skills required in the study of Geographical Information Systems, GPS, spatial analyzes, photogrammetry & cartography providing understanding and field experience. Cartography is used in the area pertaining to preserving indigenous lands and documenting water and land rights, urban and transportation planning, wildlife habitat preservation  and environmental impact analysis. This course will enable students to apply geomatics skills and knowledge in a growing field. Geomatics can be used to evaluate many issues, but not limited to, natural sciences and the environment. Research and modeling will be  essential  in  the development, design and performance monitoring of a wide variety of spatial data. The Geomatics course will provide students with further knowledge of geographical information systems. Introduction to Geographical Information Systems is  the  preliminary  course  for students, which will lead to Geomatics giving the students further understanding of geographical information sciences, GPS and cartography. The combined courses  provide  options  to  obtain work or to continue an education to acquire a certificate, an A.S. or an advanced degree. The Geomatics class supports the new paradigm for a renewed effort in geospatial analyzes  for charting  and measuring  the world.
