Master in Geoinformatics for Natural Resources Management


Program Description


Aimed at graduates in Forest Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Biology, Environmental Sciences, Geography, Forestry Engineering, Agronomic Engineering (and technical engineering and degrees from which they come).

If you are interested in learning to

  • Know and apply the latest technologies and techniques to capture spatial information: drones, satellite images, LiDAR technology, GPS, etc.
  • Know and apply advanced GIS utilities to store, manage, analyze and process spatial data.
  • Process and model geospatial information to extract useful information in solving problems of natural resource management (water resources, erosion, floods, fires, pests, burned areas, mining activities, natural heritage, etc.)
  • Apply geoinformatics tools to evaluate and quantify ecosystem goods and services associated with natural resources.
  • Perform simulations and apply models aimed at conservation and environmental management

What we offer you

  • Advanced training with a strong practical orientation that favors the incorporation into the business sector.
  • Contents designed in consultation with potential employers already graduated, to know the adequacy of the contents of the Master to their needs.
  • An official training in a subject not currently offered at University Campus in the nearby geographical environment.
  • External practices agreements with companies and public administrations.
  • Semi-classroom teaching modality, with the possibility of monitoring the face-to-face part by videoconference.
  • Improvement of skills to work in a constantly growing area that requires knowledge updating.
  • Facilities and facilities suitable for practical training: drones, multispectral cameras, GPS receivers, simulators, specific software, etc.

Professional outings

  • Inventory and modeling of natural resources through satellite, drone, LiDAR and GIS images.
  • Capture, processing and analysis of territorial information.
  • Development of solutions in territory engineering based on new technologies.
  • Development of innovative projects in forest, agricultural and landscape management.



CB6 - Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context

CB7 - That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study

CB8 - That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments

CB9 - That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way

CB10 - That students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.


CG1. Possess knowledge in the field of geoinformatics techniques, demonstrating their mastery through the elaboration and defense of arguments and the resolution of problems in the field of natural resources.

CG2. Ability to develop geospatial databases, and apply and develop geoprocesses so that the modeling of geographic information allows the extraction of useful information in natural resource management

CG3 Ability to select, apply and evaluate the most appropriate advanced geoinformatics methodologies and techniques in their application to natural resource management problems.
