The geospatial technologies industry is currently growing at a rate that will require increased quantities of skilled workers over the next several years. With the increased demand for technical skill sets, Elmhurst College has provided a GTCM-aligned program consisting of an Online GIS Certificate Program and plans for an additional online Geospatial Science Program over the next year. A traditional undergraduate program, also aligned with the GTCM, currently exists in Applied Geospatial Technologies (AGT), and has prepared students to transition into the geospatial workforce with spatial skills stemming from coursework in spatial thinking, a required internship, two programming courses, and a Web Mapping course in addition to courses in remote sensing and spatial analysis. This webinar offers an examination of a geospatial program designed with both the transitioning undergraduate student as well as the geospatial professional in mind.
