Professor working with a student in the Geographic Information Systems classroom

The University of Maine at Farmington Geographic Information Science (GIS) Certificate is ideal if you’re interested in a career that involves geographic information systems (GIS) and related spatial technologies: remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), cartography and spatial data analysis.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a critical component of fast-growing career opportunities in areas such as natural resources, planning, environmental regulation, marketing, public safety, public health, environmental analysis, recreation management, national defense and others.

Completion of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Certificate is recorded on the official UMF transcript.

Not a major, not a minor, this Certificate is open to UMF students in ANY major but coordinates especially well with our bachelor’s degree programs in Geography and Environmental Planning, Earth and Environmental Science, and Community Health Education.
