WHY CHOOSE GIS AS A CAREER

    Are you looking for a career or just a job?

Would you want to be paid for doing something you love to do or just collect a paycheck? A career where GIS is a fundamental part of your day as it allows you to be immersed in a field where you can continually grow and move forward in an environment of lifelong learning.

    Do you want to do something cool?

GIS is an exciting, rapidly changing, and evolving technology that merges nicely with
many other technologies you may be interested in, such as video, web development, and phone apps.


    Would you wish to blaze new trails?

Many, if not most, of the GIS-related jobs in the future have not even been invented yet, so market yourself. Propose a new position in an organization that you are interested in. Make your case that you are the one to staff that position.

GEOSPATIAL OR GEO-INFORMATICS

    Geographic Information Science(GIS)
    Remote Sensing
    Global Positioning Systems(GPS)
    Photogrammetry
    LiDAR
    Spatial Decision Support Systems
    Digital Cartography

 

    Geoinformatics is the science and technology that combines geospatial analysis and modeling. It involves the development of geospatial database and information systems design.
    It is the technique of creating multiple layers of a large amount of spatial data, which
in turn creates a virtual three-dimensional system, making decision-making easier.
    It provides a technique to analyze spatial data.
    Spatial Data mining in an upcoming field with more innovations being added to cater needs in various industries

GIS (GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM)

 

    GIS as an Industry is a well-grown and still developing to its full potential globally
    Shortage of Skilled Human Resource not only is GIS but also in fields related with GIS (e.g. Remote Sensing, Location-Allocation)
    Usage is under the Primary Level. Skilled GIS professional labor cost is high in developed
nations
    The full potential of GIS application is still being explored
