Online Map of Geospatial and GIS Programs

| |

Funded partially by a National Science Foundation grant, the Geospatial Education Program Finder is a interactive map based listing of two year and four college higher education programs that offer some sort of GIS based or geospatial education.  Hosted at San Diego State University, the online inventory of geospatial programs within the United States, is a product of the GeoTechCenter.  The GeoTechCenter is a collaboration effort of academic and GIS industry source to “expand the geospatial workforce”.

The Geospatial Education Program Finder allows users to view geographically all geospatial educational offerings across the United States from most  two and four years colleges.  Users can see visually if a higher education institute offers a geospatial class, a certificate program, or a degree program. Click on a location to access pop-up information: name of the insitution, program offerings, and a link to the geospatial program page (if available).

The map application was developed using ArcGIS API for JavaScript and uses a basemap from ArcGIS Online Web Map Services.

  1. Currently, we are only showing two-year community college databases now. We will add the FOUR year GIS programs to the maps very soon. Stay Tuned.


  2. Actually, George Mason University (undergraduate and graduate geography and graduate certificate in GIS) isn’t there, and University of Maryland Baltimore County (undergraduate GIS) isn’t there either. Just from what i know off the top of my head, this is missing a lot.

  3. Looked at this for fun, and quickly noticed that the University of Maine which has a graduate Spatial Information Science and Engineering program is not on the map. Odd, and makes me wonder what else has been missed.
