Imagine deploying drones to assess disaster damage and gather data that can be instantly used to take action. Helping self-driving cars go where they’re supposed to go. Or taking augmented reality to a level where it could actually help solve problems in the real world. These are just a few of many applications made possible by geo-information science and earth observation (GEO).
Geo-information science and earth observation (GEO) is all about collecting, processing, analysing, visualizing and organizing data representing the location, size and shape of objects on our planet.
This data is generally referred to as spatial information. Geo-information science allows for this generally complex data to be presented and organized in highly accessible forms (such as apps for smart phones and other mobile devices, spatial data infrastructures, maps), making the underlying story that much easier to tell and sell.
Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation degree from University of Twente (UT) will provide you with the knowledge and tools required for working with spatial information in any of the fields outlined above − and more.
From traditional map-making to creating modern data-driven solutions to real-world problems, this field offers an incredible variety of possible applications. T That certainly helps to explain why a US Department of Labor report identified this industry as one with a projected job outlook that is much higher than average.
