  • Objectives
    This eight month intensive Ontario College Graduate Certificate program prepares graduates for employment in a wide range of land-based industries that utilize spatial and tabular data. The program is project-based, software-intensive, interdisciplinary, and focused on building flexible, current, high-end applied skills. Students will gain mastery of foundational GIS skills and apply leading-edge techniques in GIS Science to create spatial solutions. Remote sensing, object-oriented programming, spatial analysis and modeling, digital photogrammetry, web map/web GIS and CAD skills will all be developed, and students will have the opportunity to apply these technical skills to their own areas of specialization (engineering, social sciences, humanities, community health or other sciences).

    Level 2    Credits

    Take all of the following Mandatory Courses:
    • METH-6003    Remote Sensing     5.00
    • METH-6004    Advanced Analysis in GIS     5.00
    • COMP-6036    Advanced Programming-OOP     5.00

    COMP-6034 -  Programming Basics-OOP
    This is an introductory course to the elementary aspects of object oriented programming languages such as C#, C++ and VB.Net. The relationship of programming to GIS software will be examined to show how user-written programs may enhance such pursuits as GIS analysis and GPS data acquisition.

    COMP-6035 -  Spatial Data Acquisition
    Geographical features can be mapped electronically using various systems such as total station devices, GPS, digital aerial photography, digital maps and remotely sensed data. All of this data can be transferred to a CAD or GIS product. The students will acquire this data using a GPS device as well as create digital data from aerial photography. This data will be corrected and linked to existing digital data.

    COMP-6036 -  Advanced Programming-OOP
    This is an advanced level course studying advanced level aspects of object oriented programming languages such as C#, C++ and VB.Net.The relationship of programming to GIS Software will be implemented to show how custom user written programs will enhance GIS analysis and GPS data acquisition.

    METH-6001 -  Fundamentals of GIS
    This course consists of a theory and computer lab portions. In the theory portion GIScience is studied. In the computer lab portion, a series of exercises will introduce the student to GIS software. The acquisition, processing, storage, display and basic analysis of spatial and tabular data will be mastered.

    METH-6002 -  Information Systems
    The structure and theory of relational database management systems are studied. The interrelationship between RDBMS and GIS is explored through the use of case studies. Spreadsheet and database software are used to create, store, manage, and query tabular data. Special emphasis will be placed on the structure and design of spatial geodatabases.

    METH-6003 -  Remote Sensing

    This course will examine various types of remotely sensed imagery and how it is used by planners, resource managers, engineers and scientists. Image enhancement, supervised and unsupervised classification, spectral signature statistics, geometric registration, temporal change analysis and thematic map creation are some of the topics to be covered.

    METH-6004 -  Advanced Analysis in GIS

    This project based computer lab course will build on prerequisite GIS courses to study the new directions in GIS theory and in the GIS industry. Topics covered include investigating new software directions, projects in advanced raster GIS, 3D analysis, and a self-directed project.

    METH-6005 -  Web GIS

    This is an intermediate level course studying the implementation of GIS within Web applications. The focus of this course will be to develop and implement third-party objects that may be used within a Web environment to enhance GIS analysis and GPS data acquisition.
