We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Cartography equip postgraduates with the skills to analyse, prepare and produce maps and charts of geographical areas, including oceans and land masses.
Related subjects include Topography and Geographical Information Systems. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography.
Courses in Cartography and Geographical Mapping equip you with the skills to develop traditional map production as well as internet and mobile mapping technologies.
Training typically include methods for disseminating geospatial information, including techniques such as geovisualisation, cartographic design, and topographic mapping. Various terrestrial and marine areas may be analysed, meaning you could work on local, national and international scales.
Practical training includes methods in landscape monitoring and geomatics, including remote sensing and GIS (geographical information systems). This usually involves fieldwork across a range of landscapes, including both rural and urbanised areas.
Careers typically include GIS specialisation for environmental agencies and regulatory bodies, cartography for local government departments, and may also be applied to roles in public services such as the armed forces.
