Geospatial scientists tell you WHAT you need to know about a WHERE, and WHEN

WHAT is geospatial science?

Geospatial science is one of the most important fields of study you’ve never heard of. In a nutshell, geospatial scientists collect, analyse and model data based on a particular location, then use creative ways to map or represent the data simply and meaningfully.

They build a deeper understanding of this data, including how it relates to the surrounding environment and the ways it changes over time. What they learn can help shape every aspect of your world.

WHERE can you find geospatial science in your life?

We use spatial information to understand everything about the world around us.

Have you ever considered just how often you use maps every day? Google Maps, the SatNav in your car, SnapMaps, Pokemon Go, Google Street View, Uber, finding a pizza, Twitter, catching a train, tracking a flight, Find My Phone… even your photos tag where you are.

All of this is spatial information. It’s the connection of people to location and location to data.

WHEN can you find out if geospatial science is the field for you?

You can learn how to achieve a geospatial science qualification right now. If you’re interested in geography, science, technology, visual arts and IT – plus you like to find solutions to challenging projects – geospatial science could be for you.

Across this site you’ll find videos and articles. You’ll learn about the kind of life a geospatial scientist leads, and the impact you could have on our future environment.
