Geographers employ a number of different techniques for collecting, studying, and analyzing spatial data. These techniques include both quantitative and qualitative approaches, while also stressing important computer-centered technologies. Many students trained in these techniques go on to work in a number of different public and private industries, from planning departments to environmental assessment agencies to non-profit community based organizations.
Within the "techniques," we offer courses in the following areas:
- Remote Sensing
- Spatial Statistics
- Field Methods
- Qualitative Methods
