The only Geospatial Information Systems postgraduate courses in South Australia.
The postgraduate program for Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) is the only GIS stream available in South Australia. Blending the disciplines of science, computer science, data analytics, geography and cartography, GIS is a fascinating and powerful area of study which allows you to impact the world around you – from using drones to survey and photograph potential areas for environmental conservation, using location intelligence and data to address racial inequities, to helping plan our future cities and genuinely improve lives.
The program provides a theoretical and practical framework for graduates from a range of backgrounds, as well as those from the public sector and non-government organisations wishing to extend their choice of career path by acquiring knowledge and skills in the capture, analysis and communication of spatially referenced information. You will develop and implement GIS skills and knowledge applicable to a range of areas, such as environmental management, urban and regional planning, human geography and environmental health, land-use dynamics, natural resources management, ecosystem services, biological sciences and archaeology. Students completing the Master of Geospatial Information Systems will be able to undertake research and analysis using spatially-referenced data and prepare research reports applicable to various fields of GIS application.
