Forest Resources and Conservation with Concentration in Geomatics
The University of Florida’s Master of Sciences in Forest Resources and Conservation with a Concentration in Geomatics is delivered by the university’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and administered under the School of Forest Resources and Conservation. Geomatics refers to the integrated approach of measurement, analysis, and management of the descriptions and locations of geospatial data. This data can come from a variety of sources, including earth-orbiting satellites, air and sea-borne sensors, and ground-based instruments. Geomatics has applications in multiple disciplines, including forestry, environmental studies, planning, engineering, navigation, geology, geophysics, and national intelligence.
This program’s primarily distance learning delivery was designed with place-bound planning professionals in mind that wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. The program’s curriculum consists of ten courses, or 30 credits, and is a mix of required foundational courses and elective classes that the student can choose based on their personal interests and professional goals. Courses in this program span topics such as Digital Mapping, Remote Sensing Applications, Terrain Analysis and Mapping, Land Tenure and Administration, and Image Processing. After successfully completing the required curriculum, students should have gained a thorough and diverse education, which may allow them to have a career in the field of Geomatics.
