The program focusses on the skills needed to create an effective Geographic Information System through:

  • translating management and scientific problems into GIS
  • designing and implementing appropriate methods of data capture

  • managing a GIS project and implementing GIS within an organization
  • studying the social implications of GIS 

SFU has made arrangements with theirUK partners for students to apply the Certificate in Theoretical and Applied Geographic Information Systems to an MSc degree by completing an additional year of part-time study with a thesis.
