This unique MSC aims to provide you with the theoretical and practical skills to use and analyse Earth Observation data in conjunction with Geographical Information Science (GIS). This programme is well-embedded in a research and industry active environment, and builds on the successful MSc in Geographical Information Science (GIS) degree, which was the first of its type in the world with a heritage of over 30 years.
Earth Observation involves the gathering of information about the Earth’s physical, chemical and biological systems using remote sensing technologies such as satellites. Earth Observation is growing in social, economic and political importance by helping us better understand and manage the earth and its environment in areas such as agriculture, infrastructure and transportation, mineral resource management, land use and planning, monitoring pollution, deforestation and land degradation to climate change monitoring and action.
