Environmental geomatics synthesizes a number of concepts and techniques, including remote sensing, spatial analysis, geographic information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS), that are used to improve the planning and management of natural resource systems. These techniques include the development of complex spatial databases from a wide range of data sources and the application of this information to solve environmental problems. The Environmental Geomatics Minor is designed to give students, regardless of major, an understanding of remote sensing, GIS and GPS technologies and their application in environmental resource planning, monitoring, and management.

The minor is administered through the Department of Landscape Architecture
