Geography Geospatial Intelligence & Remote Sensing Track

Geospatial Intelligence & Remote Sensing
 
remote sensing
 
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency defines geospatial intelligence as the analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess, and visually depict physical features, human activities, and geographically reference activities on the Earth.  Students in this track will receive training in digital processing of remote sensing observations and cartographic vector data, spatial analysis, display of information products in ENVY and GIS software.  The curriculum will provide students with the necessary background to use remote sensing in various fields such as military analysis and intelligence, environmental monitoring, counter-narcotics, disaster assessments, law enforcement and other related fields. This track goes beyond the techniques for gathering and analyzing data and requires an understanding of the environmental and social processes represented by the data. These tools are essential to the education and future of global citizens.
