Program Information

School:Ryerson University
Faculty:The Chang School
Field of Study:Cartography
Description:This certificate program has been developed for professionals currently practising or anticipating careers in government, industry, utilities, planning, municipal services, health, and retailing, who wish to enhance their professional skills in digital geography and geographic information systems (GIS). The certificate is designed to provide both training and education in digital geography.

The program responds to today’s need for enhanced computer literacy in the management and analysis of digital spatial data, and the application of that data in decision-making. Digital geography is an area of study that concentrates on the electronic capture, storage, manipulation, and analysis of geographic data. Using location as the “look-up” key, disparate data sets can be linked and related to each other for a whole range of workplace applications. Following initial courses in which principles and concepts of digital geography and fundamental skills in GIS are introduced, the workplace applications are stressed in courses aimed at specific specialties. Higher level courses focus on refining GIS tools and implementation issues.
