SCPS GIS and Design Certificate

Through courses in our program, students learn to explore and analyze spatial data, develop technical mapping skills, and apply visual design principles to their practice. The certificate program courses teach students how to acquire and create data for use in various projects. Proper assessment of spatial data quality is a core component of the program. Using software like Esri’s ArcGIS and QGIS, students learn many of the powerful tools available for transforming spreadsheets into stylized maps and creative graphics.

Increasingly, there are many tools for sharing GIS products on the web and through mobile applications. Certificate program courses examine the principles of design for the web, interactive design, and the technical underpinnings of online mapping using Carto and Mapbox, among others. With expertise in the programming languages JavaScript, Python and R, students learn to build dynamic web-based maps, mobile apps, and methods for incorporating graphic data into websites and blogs.
