Geographic Sciences

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Geographic sciences is a field that encompasses human activity and the physical makeup of planet Earth. Studies in this field can include the interaction between the two, as well as the technology used for data analysis.

Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the eastern and northern hemispheres. It covers 8.7% of the Earth's total surface area and comprises 30% of its land area.

Masters in Geographic Sciences in Asia 2018. Master of Technology in Geomatics Program Overview The Masters of Technology in Geomatics is a field with ancient roots, modern relevance, and an eye to the future. Geomatics is both an applied science and a professional discipline. Geomatics,also known as Geo-Informatics, refers to the mathematics, science and technology used to study spatial information. M.Tech in Geomatics is a professional course which is unique and different than mainstream specialization which offers latest space-based technology. Geomatics is for those who are tech-savvy, want to get trained and skill developed in remote sensing and geographical information systems, those with knowledge of computers can use their skills in developing tools to make the world interesting and simple to understand for people and knowledge-based decision making. Those who belong to the field of Engineering, Architecture, Planning, Information Technology, Computer Science, Basic Science, Earth Science, Geography, but would like to study for an applied career then Geomatics can be very rewarding. Curriculum Masters in Geomatics is designed ‘discipline neutral’ for interdisciplinary graduate students and professionals. It includes earth observation from space through various remote sensing sensors. The course covers data acquisition system, GIS, information technology, resources application and analysis to the interdisciplinary graduates and professionals. Geomatics extends into more contemporary methods including Global Positioning Systems, Digital Photogrammetry, LiDAR Technology, qualitative and quantitative analysis of satellite and aerial imagery specific to earth sciences and environmental applications. Various aspects of project planning and management, database design and archiving, Big-data, Web and... [-]
