Where Big Data and our Physical World Meet to Shape the Future

Data is being created at an exponential scale. While much of our source data has differing origins, the science of big data seeks to discover correlations about our lives and the world we live in, find patterns, and give birth to new insights and services that impact our world. Geoinformatics, which combines computational science with the geospatial and temporal data of Geographic Information Science (GIS), is an increasingly in-demand field of study and work.

The Master of Science in GeoInformatics provides training for careers in many sectors of business, government, and academia. As technology more and more integrates into our lives, GeoInformatics focus on mapping the physical world will only increase in prominance, creating a timely and in-demand skillset and career. Hunter's focus on GeoInformatics is unique within the New York City Metropolitan area. Our training in the computational aspects of GIS includes modeling and programming, remote sensing, visualization, databases, spatial ontologies, spatial statistics, big data, complexity, as well as applied research topics such as human and animal mobility, transportation, crime and health, environmental modeling, urban environments, biogeography, disaster management, and community-based GIS.


Our students belong to a vibrant and diverse academic community that go on to thrive in life.
