Creator: Tsou, Ming-Hsiang
Publisher: San Diego State University
Description: This resource, created by faculty at San Diego State University, discusses geographic information science as a career. The resource contains general information geographic information (GIS) systems, careers in GIS, educational resources, educational programs, online maps and project documents. The site alludes to many of the reasons why GIS is becoming a more prominent career path. The authors state: "There are estimates that indicate that 80% of ALL data have a spatial or location-based component. With GIS as a tool, companies, organizations, and individuals can improve their data integration & organization, make better strategic decisions, and make maps based on specific requirements and questions asked." All of their resources center on the concept of GIS as an interdisciplinary tool applicable in many situations and settings. Overall, this is a nice resource for student or educators interested in GIS and the role it is playing in today's society.
