You will acquire strong working knowledge of remote sensing, spatial analysis, decision science, image processing, dynamic modeling, time series analysis, geostatistics, and the global positioning system. Special opportunities also exist in conservation and earth system science or GIScience and remotely sensed image processing software development.
