Publisher: 
Nova Scotia Community College

How do you find an optimal location for a new shopping centre, hospital, school, or restaurant? How do you determine a service area for a grocery supermarket? Where are potential customers for a new banking service? With the skills you develop in this concentration, you're able to address many business, socio-economic, and demographic challenges from a spatial context and present solutions visually on a map. You hone your GIS skills with a focus on enterprise solutions.

Geographic Sciences - Advanced Diploma - Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Concentration [Nova Scotia Community College, NSCC]

In this concentration you study the programming and application of geographic information systems (GIS) or geospatial technology. In addressing geographically based problems, analytical and technological tools (including hardware and software) are applied to create solutions. Geospatial information links locational data (where things are) with descriptive data (information that is associated with each location). You use points (utility poles, mine sites), lines (river centrelines), and polygons (land parcels, counties) to model reality and provide geographic information.
