Description: Geocomputational Science is the theory and practice that provides the foundation for the development and application of many geospatial technologies. It is a combination of analytical geography and computing science. Students who have grounding in both the geographical and computational disciplines, and can integrate these areas, are much sought after in industry, government and research organizations. It is a major part of the geomatics industry that Industry Canada has identified as a major component of the information technology sector. Any organization with spatially extensive resources and operations requires geocomputational expertise to manage and analyze the spatial data essential to an enterprise’s decision making. Geography at U of T Mississauga has a long history of offering courses in the application of geographic information systems and spatial analysis; Computer Science offers many courses that are the foundation for much of information science in general. Combining these strengths in a recognized Geocomputational Science Program provides a formal venue for students who wish to enter the geomatics job market or pursue advanced degrees in fields related to Geocomputational Science.
