    Geospatial Intelligence


    Geospatial intelligence is the field of extracting actionable knowledge from location-based data. It helps urban planners to make informed site selections; conservationists to predict impacts from climate change; agriculturalists to improve paddock management decisions; and geologists to construct models to narrow the exploration search space.

    In this course you'll increase your knowledge of geospatial intelligence and strengthen your skills in geospatial analytics, location-allocation, dataset integration and modelling of multiple datasets. You'll also learn how to write scripts to automate complex tasks.

    In your second year, you'll undertake a critical literature review and complete a significant research project on a chosen topic.

    You'll graduate with skill sets that combine remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), data management, visualisation and other geospatial tools that enable you to describe, analyse, dissect and interpret large, diverse datasets.

    This is a nested course that is suitable for those seeking to boost or change their career. The graduate certificate and graduate diploma courses are stepping stones to this master course.

    See our handbook for more course information.
