The past two decades have witnessed significant advances of geographic information technologies (GIT) involving GPS, remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS), and increasing booming of their applications in geosciences and social sciences alike. The most tangible showcases of GIT familiar to the Nordic people are Eniro Kartor and hitta.se, with which we can find places or planning a travel going from location A to B. Similar free services are provided by Google Maps and various others. These technologies have another name to refer to, so called geographic information services, i.e. the use of GIT and geographic information for serving the public in their daily lives and businesses.
After the studiesYou would be able to work at various governmental agencies e.g., national mapping agency or other agencies that need geography and geomatics related skills, universities mainly for research or teaching, and private sectors as a geo-analyst or consultant.
