Cartography and Geographic technologies

Please note: this program is 10 months duration.

Cartography - known as the art and science of making maps, has come a long way since the efforts of early mapmakers who worked with pen and ink. While cartography still relies on many of the traditional principles, mapmaking now requires incorporating the best of modern research and technology. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allows today's "cartographer" to store geographic data in an organized way, to allow for quick access, correlation, and analysis. This system also facilitates the development of cartographic displays. By using GIS, cartographers are able to collect, store, and combine data about a given area, subject, or region being researched. GIS helps planners working on environmental, public health, municipal planning, and natural resource projects (to name a few uses) monitor change, predict trends and manage resources using current relevant data.

The GIS Cartographic Specialist program is an advanced post-graduate program, building on your existing, related skills.

  • These strong partnerships offer students access to the latest software packages and data resources as well as unprecedented learning and employment opportunities.
  • Most GIS programs focus on geographic analysis and application - but the Fleming Cartographic Specialist program is based on a dual approach which is truly unique.
  • You will become a proficient GIS practitioner, as well as a visual designer and communicator - using GIS data and software to create a wide variety of customized maps and other products for users of geographic information.

The common first semester in the GIS Cartographic Specialist and GIS Applications Specialist programs gives you a good overview and understanding of the technologies and diverse skills particular to careers in these fields. Subject to enrolment capacity, you can choose which area of specialized study you will pursue in semester two. In addition to acquiring a hands-on, firm foundation using Cartography, digital mapping and GIS technology skills and tools, you will have many opportunities to build on your teamwork, team building, project management, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Since employers are seeking these broad-based transferrable skills, this experience working in technology teams will give you an edge in the workplace.

This three-semester (10-month) program starts in September with a 15-week semester ending in December, continues in January with another 15-week semester ending in April, and concludes with a seven-week semester starting in May and ending in June.

Datamining revealed? from craigslist bots

by XbLADErUnnerx

I work for a company who occasionally buys information from companies like info-usa. I write internal programs that basically organize this data and insert it into databases.
One thing I personally do is sell computer stuff over craigslist, and I use an exclusive inbox.com account for business that is used nowhere else. I've also never got spammer or spammer-like emails on this account that I responded to and completely block images and objects that can reveal anything via HTTP requests. Yet I've been seeing that email address pop up in acquisition data my company buys.

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.

How has modern technology affected the field of cartography?

Since the mid-1900s technology has helped professional cartography undergo rapidly accelerating change. Photolithography and photoengraving have merged photography with printing—high-speed multi-color lithographic offset presses can rapidly produce maps of almost any degree of detail, color scheme, or labeling requirement.
