I'm GIS Analyst (geographic information systems)

by TeabaggeryForTwo

I do a lot of collection, creation, management, processing, analysis, and graphical representation (cartography) of spatial data relating to all kinds of projects -- infrastructure, public health/safety, environment, and more. It's a very narrow niche, and I have no interest in information technology per se... I'm more of a geographer than a techie person. The problem with GIS is that in order to "progress" past a certain point (the point that I'm at) it's generally necessary to become a programmer and/or code monkey of some sort -- totally not up my alley.

What college or university offers great courses for Geography, GIS, or Cartography?

I know Central Connecticut has a program, and UConn as well. However, Penn State has a great summer interdisciplinary program and their geography program is very good.
