As a general rule, students may view class videos and accomplish assignments at any time throughout a week in any of the offered program courses and have the weekly opportunity (or requirement) to participate in a one to two hour “live” discussion session at a mutually convenient time for distance class members prior to due dates for weekly assignments. The Spatial Informatics program of The University of Maine is an “online only” version of the existing on-campus research-focused MS in Spatial Information Science and Engineering degree.
Students develop knowledge and technical skills in foundation areas of formal methods, programming, information system design, human computer interaction and information law and ethics. All of these general information systems graduate courses draw on spatial technology examples or contextual environments.
Based on the foundation, a wide variety of in-depth skills are developed in the areas of web-based database systems design and development, real-time data stream processing, spatial cognition, geosensor networks, spatial data science, ontology frameworks and virtual/augmented reality. Students gain working familiarity with one or more programming languages if not already acquired.
The online graduate program specializes in preparing graduates to better utilize location information, geographic information systems, sensors, sensor networks and mobile technologies in accomplishing the day-to-day tasks of businesses and government and to help advance new innovations in these domains. In addition, students may propose courses within their program of study that provide an understanding of business and engineering applications and thus provide further foundations for effective communication with end users.
