University of Maine

The Master of Science in Spatial Informatics focuses on advancing knowledge about spatial information particularly with respect to concepts needed in next-generation information systems. Emphasis is placed on developing novel concepts and methods in the broad field of geographic information science for: storing, accessing, analyzing, and managing spatial data, and modeling, extracting, integrating, visualizing, and communicating geospatial information. An overall objective of the program is to meet the growing demand in society for graduates with high-level geographic information system skills and provide a path for women and men from diverse fields to rapidly transition to information system career paths by providing them with foundation graduate level courses in information systems and geospatial technologies.

The Master of Science in Spatial Informatics is an “all e-learning” “all coursework” academic degree for place-bound students that desire strong theory, computational, analytical, policy and technical foundations in geographic information science and systems. It is viewed as an “online only” version of the existing and more intense on-campus research-focused MS in Spatial Information Science and Engineering.
