Geospatial Analytics Concentration
This concentration enables MS Data Science students to develop advanced skills and expertise in geospatial science and technology. Incorporating Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, and location-based data allows data scientists to uncover spatial patterns. The concentration provides a foundation across the breadth of geospatial technology to prepare data for analysis, perform suitability analysis, spatial predictive modeling, geostatistics, and space-time pattern mining and object detection. The concentration coursework (12 credits) incorporates advanced geovisualization and webmapping technology to also enhance cartography analytics and communications.
