Geographic Information Systems Papers at Tauranga (2020)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is widely used by industry because it is a framework for storing, mapping and analysing information on land and water. Physical and human geography students, as well as ecology and population study students, are quick to identify the importance of GIS knowledge for employment.

GIS is available as a minor.

To complete a minor in GIS, students must complete 60 points, including 15 points from COMPX101, COMPX102, STATS111, COMPX223 or STATS221; 30 points from EARTH251, ENVPL202 or POPST201; and GEOGY328.
