Geospatial Technologies at UVM

Geospatial Technologies UVM students in a Geospatial Technologies class

GIS, Remote Sensing, GPS, and Spatial Analysis

Welcome to Geospatial Technologies at UVM. Here you will find information on getting started using geospatial technologies, accessing software, finding data, selecting courses, obtaining technical help, learning about research projects, and more.

Why are Geospatial Technologies important?

With the recent availability of high spatial resolution (detailed) satellite and aerial imagery, desktop software for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing, and inexpensive Global Positioning Systems (GPS) receivers, geospatial technologies are currently on the forefront of a revolution in the acquisition, integration, and analysis of geospatial data applicable to a wide array of environmental issues at local to global scales. The tools offered by these technologies can incorporate huge volumes of data from a multitude of sources tied to a location on the Earth and analyze that data using new and innovative methods to reveal relationships in time and space.

Knowledge of these technologies will provide students with the skills needed to meet the demands of their diverse careers in the global workplace. Use the useful links in the left menu to help in your journey into GST at UVM.

As a UVM student participating in the EDC Program, you can obtain a copy of ArcGIS software for use on your personal PC through Bailey/Howe Library Media Services. For more information on ArcGIS software installation, go to ArcGIS at UVM.

For more information, contact Ernie Buford or Jarlath O'Neil-Dunne
