“I’ve learned a great deal about how GIS applications are applied to civil applications and how to apply similar applications I wouldn’t normally use on Army systems, ” Kimbell says.

In today’s technology-driven world, geospatial information is widely used in a diverse array of applications—as consumers and corporations alike demand real-time, location-based information. Organizations around the globe—from the energy industry to the telecom industry, from health care to business—are developing innovative ways to use spatial data to make critical strategic decisions. As a result, a wide range of industries have a need for professionals with the ability to gather, synthesize and apply geospatial concepts and insights into their working environments.

The 15-credit hour Geospatial Information Systems graduate certificate offers a cross-disciplinary curriculum that focuses on the real-world use of geospatial information to address organizational challenges. Students learn to use tools that enable the integration of visual, spatial, temporal, social and contextual information into the working environment to more effectively solve complex issues.

The digital Paullin arrives at what seems like a fortuitous moment. In recent years, scholars have paid increasing attention to the spatial aspects of history, using sophisticated Geographic Information Systems technology to reveal previously unseen patterns of change. The Richmond lab’s 2012 Visualizing Emancipation project, for example, plots out intricate interactions between federal policy, the Union and Confederate Armies, and thousands of enslaved people, illuminating how liberation unfolded on the ground.
At the same time, other researchers are taking a fresh look at old maps, exploring how they represent not just changes in the nation’s boundaries and places, but also deeper shifts in its self-understanding
