Program Overview

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is a high-demand technology field with high earnings potential and interesting, challenging work. GIS uses software to create maps, graphs, charts, and reports of data which has the form of spatial reference. Some examples are the location of fire stations in a city, hurricane evacuation routes, the best location for businesses based on demographic statistics, and maps of property boundaries. GIS technicians are highly skilled professionals responsible for acquiring, encoding, plotting, and mapping spatial data.

Del Mar College offers one-semester certificates, one-year certificates, and two-year Associates degrees in GIS.
