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. The capital city Madrid has possibly the largest number of bars per capita of any European city and a very active nightlife.

The Interuniversity Master's Degree in Geoinformatics by the Universities of Vigo and A Coruña was born as a title of high specialization to train professionals oriented to the market of the geospatial industry. [+]
The Interuniversity Master in Geoinformatics By the Universities of Vigo and A Coruña was born as a title of high specialization to train professionals oriented to the market of the geospatial industry. The geospatial industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in recent years due to different applications related to global positioning systems, geographic information systems, mobile devices or satellite remote sensing.
The curriculum is designed for students to acquire competencies in the design, implementation and management of spatial databases, definition and execution of geoprocesses, visualization of geographic information and realization of projects with geographic information systems. It also includes optional content designed to intensify student training in geotechnology (remote sensing and sensor networks), or in the field of information technology (development of desktop GIS applications, on the web, or on mobile systems)....

The objective of this master is to provide solid scientific training in techniques of Earth observation, and the generation and analysis of information for the study of the territory and the management of their resources through GIS. It is a 60 ECTS Master is structured in 4 compulsory modules, an optional module for advanced training (to choose between two possible) and finally Work Master's Thesis. All classes are conducted with computer. The course is complemented by practical tutoring sessions, seminars and possible visits to organizations in the sector. [+]
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)....
