Geographic Information Systems University

Offered jointly by the University of Denver's college of professional and continuing studies, University College, and the Department of Geography, a Master of Science in Geographic Information Sciences (GISc) is available entirely online to students seeking advanced GIS training. University College also offers a graduate certificate in GIS both online and on campus at the University of Denver.

For students who wish to pursue an MSGISc degree, they may start at University College without taking an entrance exam, such as the GRE. Students in this GIS program will benefit from earning a graduate certificate before going on to earn their MSGISc degree with the Department of Geography (either online or on campus). Before moving on to the Department of Geography, students must earn a B or better in each GIS course at University College if they wish to transfer to the Department of Geography.

The GIS program prepares students to strategically solve real-world problems and come up with cutting-edge solutions through a combination of technology and business skills. GIS students will learn the nature of geographic data while recognizing the appropriate applications of GIS technology to solve spatial issues.

Led by experts with practical experience in the field of geographic information systems, classes are delivered entirely online for degree-seekers, or if you're a graduate certificate student classes are held either on campus in the evenings or online. Students may customize their degree to meet their specific GIS career needs, whether they require additional skills in business, project management, or information communications technology. Graduate certificate and master's degree seekers will appreciate a hands-on approach in project-oriented courses that provide students with a better understanding of how to plan, implement, and execute a GIS project.

Scholars seem to disagree

by Soberania

Two scholars say in a new research paper that despite earlier denials, the Census Bureau was deeply involved in the roundup and internment of Japanese Americans at the onset of U.S. entry into World War II.
The academics say the Census Bureau's involvement included identifying concentrations of people of Japanese ancestry in geographic units as small as city blocks, lending a senior Census Bureau official to work with the War Department on the relocation program and a willingness to disclose names and address of Japanese Americans.
While it is common today for the Census Bureau to publish reports that detail the number of people of a given race living in an area as small as a city block, such information was generally not available in the 1940s

Ligonier Borough complies with directional sign mandate  — Tribune-Review
Although Geographic Information Systems mapping of the borough pinpoints all directional signs, it does not include all data needed to comply with the program. “They want to see off-sets, heights, directions, locations, all kinds of stuff,” Faas said.
