Geographic Sciences

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

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.

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state and a member state of the European Union. It is located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Spanish universities regulate access to their own degrees and they fix the academic fees. They can also offer unofficial postgraduate degrees.

Best Masters in Geographic Sciences in Spain 2018. Remote sensing techniques and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are essential to study the Earth and manage its resources. This central role is not only present in the academic world but we perceive it in multiple fields. Indeed, we found signs of increased presence and interest in areas such as the (new and improved satellite Earth observation, aerial vehicles or UAVs, European boost to GPS systems like Galileo, etc.) tools, geographic information (the success of Google Earth or Google Maps, the quality excellent ICC mapping, etc.), its metadata (increased presence and consolidation of standards), cataloging Special data Infrastructures (IDEC, IDEE, etc.) or software (such as the current gratuity of Miramon programms for administrations and students that has driven the Generalitat de Catalunya and the different alternatives of free software). In this context there is a need for well-trained professionals in these disciplines, who know the basics, but also the latest trends as standardization promoted by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
