Whether you are a student considering your first career or someone already in the workplace who is considering a new career, choosing GIS can be rewarding in many ways. GIS technology uses specialized computer systems to get geographic data and integrate it into intelligent “super” maps. The data can then be used to create endless “what if” scenarios, providing a powerful tool for applications including Cartography (map making), Emergency management, Environmental sciences and security, Forest and range management, Homeland security, Medicine and healthcare, Real estate development and appraisal, Social services, Transportation, Urban planning and development, Water resources, etc. A career where GIS is a fundamental part of your day allows you to be immersed in a field where you can continually grow and move forward in an environment of lifelong learning.
