Candian High School Student Interested In Geomatic Engineering Or Geographic Information Systems, Or Surveying I Guess

To my understanding the only place in Canada for GIS is University Of Regina, Or Geomatic Engineering its either North Albertan Institute of Technology (Polytechnic, so to do a full 4 years one would have to transfer to UA), University Of Alberta, or University Of New Brunswick. I here tell that with Geomatic Engineering one can pay of the tution quite easily by getting a job as an assistent surveryor after your second year, and leave university debt free.

MN DNR Geographic Information System (GIS) Maps


I have been researching hiking spots and trying to understand the forest in Northern Minnesota over the past 20-30 years, and how it has changed with recent human activity, fire, and blowdown.

I recently found the following list of links helpful and at the very least interesting:

I'm looking for a major that combines computer programming, art, social justice, library science, and sometimes geographic information systems. There's a huge emphasis on DIY projects and community spaces. It was a very popular field circa 2007-2013, and now I can't find much information on it.

I'm probably explaining this very poorly. I'm an older student currently in school for Computer Science and I'd like to go into this field instead, and for the life of me I can't remember what it's called. I can't find any information on it and other subreddits have told me it doesn't exist, but I remember it being very popular between around 2007 and 2013 (those years may not be exactly right), in the way that Cybersecurity is popular now.

It's a field/major under the umbrella of "technology".

It's about the archival of information, but also about using computer programming in art installations and for issues related to social justice (usually food justice, but also for 'community projects'). There was also an emphasis on creating maps, and sometimes the relationships between computer programming and human linguistics. Most college courses in this program offered courses like entrepreneurship, Arduino programming, courses that focused on establishing community spaces, using technology to establish farms in urban food deserts, usually GIS, sometimes linguistics, 3D printing, and art/sculpture in which the art is 'programmed' on a computer rather than made via traditional means.

There's a huge emphasis on "do it yourself" projects and building things by hand. If you've ever played The Sims 'Eco Living' expansion it's kind of like that, but it was an entire career field one could pursue in college.

It's not Computer Science (found that out the hard way) and it's also not IT, and it doesn't seem to be in any art or liberal arts school I've seen in the past five or six years. This is the only major I've found that sort of resembles what I'm looking for, but it's not quite the same.

US - $700-900 USD Geographic Information System (GIS) and moderate gaming laptop


  • Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US:
    Anywhere from $700-900 USD
  • Are you open to refurbs/used?
    No, looking to buy new.
  • How would you prioritize form factor (ultrabook, 2-in-1, etc.), build quality, performance, and battery life?
    Looking for something durable with fast performance (effective multitasking) and a long battery life. Overall I would prioritize performance, and I really hate having a laptop that dies a few hours off the charger.
  • How important is weight and thinness to you?
    Not very important, moderate weight is fine. Nothing too light.
  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.
    Something 14 inches or bigger is preffered.
  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.
    Diving into the GIS field, need to be able to use mapping and modeling programs such as ArcGIS and be able to multitask reliably with programs like Python, Spotify, Steam, and a browser.
  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?
    I use Steam. I mainly play Terraria, TF2, Realm of the Mad God, and other games like Minecraft on the lowest graphic settings on my desktop and I would like to be able to run them on high/medium graphics with good frames on my laptop (which I can't currently do, lags like crazy in games like Terraria/MC when the save files get bigger). Upgrading my PC is next where I would like to do most of my gaming, but my current laptop shit the bed and I could barely do uni assignments on it (EXTREMELY tedious) much less game (mainly Stardew Valley on lowest settings).
  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?
    I would like something with a reliable illuminated keyboard. I don't really care about touch-screens or finger print readers, I am not considering these things at all. It would be nice if the touch pad was just one button instead of three. I would also like a good quality, but not super crazy, camera and built in microphone for video chats.
  • Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion.
    I will mainly be doing GIS/programming and school work on this laptop. Gaming is secondary

GIS (Geographic Information System) and Archaeology Opportunities

Hello everyone glad to join this sub reddit.! I am entering my final year in Bachelor's Degree in Applied Archaeology and am looking about the possibility of any opportunities in Japan as it is a country I would love to experience for a couple of years! I have completed a module in GIS and have really liked working with it. I am wondering are there many work opportunities in Japan using GIS either in the archaeological discipline or something similarly related? Also what are the opportunities like in archaeology fieldwork? I understand I am at a big disadvantage as I cannot speak Japanese, but hope to learn some in the meantime if I find out there are are viable prospects of working in this wonderful country. Any help or information is greatly appreciated

Geographic Information System (GIS) jobs in Madison

Hey all,

I am contemplating on moving to Madison in the next year or 2 from Denver. Besides the state and local governments, I was wondering if there were some companies in the Madison region that utilize GIS?

Also, really looking forward to checking out the discgolf courses in Madison. They look really well maintained and that excites me like no other!

EDIT: Thanks for all of your help!

Is Coursera's Geographic Information Systems Specialization worthwhile?

Hello, during my undergrad in Environmental Science I took two GIS courses, both using ArcMap. I found Coursera's GIS specialization and I think is good for polishing my GIS skills. However, I recently learned that the newer ArcGIS Pro replaced ArcMap, and the coursera specialization uses ArcMap. So I was wondering if I should try to exclusively learn to use ArcGIS Pro or whether polishing my ArcMap skills with the specialization can help me perform better analyses using GIS. I would greatly appreciate your input!

Geographic Names Information System (GNIS)

I am going down a new hole, this time using the GNIS database. A quick first look at Colorado (for example) has 155 references to "Brown" out of ~50k total features. Several "Brown Creek", a "Brown Homestead", many "Brown Gulch", several "Brown Canyon", "Browns Fort Heliport", "John Brown Mine", and even a "Browns Canyon Warm Spring".

Next step for me is to use SQL to filter results to fit Fenn's other spatial clues, such as elevation, sagebrush distribution, etc.

I will be posting maps and stats of my results as I have them. As a geographer, I feel the search can be significantly narrowed down by using maps, as Fenn himself has stated. I know others have used the GNIS previously, but I think this will be how the Home of Brown, and WTWWH will be located.

Any GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Majors Here?

Currently enrolled in comp sci but am strongly considering making the switch to GIS since both programs overlap quite a bit but I would be moving into an area I'm more interested in. Some questions I have:

  1. What are the job opportunities like coop wise? Would I just be going for comp sci coops or is there a lot of stuff specific to GIS
  2. Do you deal with the geography or computer science department when it comes to advising? Doesn't seem like there's a clear cut place to go to unless I've missed information somewhere.
  3. What are your thoughts on the program and are you enjoying it? Any regrets?
