The University of Redlands' Master of Science in Geographic Information Systems Program is a one-year intensive program designed for professionals seeking to enhance their existing academic foundations with a comprehensive understanding of geographic information science fundamentals and the use and application of GI technologies. All students in the program complete a major individual project that addresses the needs of a real-world client. The project is comprehensive and involves requirements analysis, database and systems design, software development, systems implementation, and eventual deployment. The abstracts of those projects are provided here, along with full-text versions and other ancillary material for selected projects. Prospective students and clients are encouraged to visit http://www.spatial.redlands.edu/msgis/ for more information.
