Criterion 4 – Geospatial Science is Multidisciplinary

a) Geospatial Science Teaching in Non-geospatial Science Courses for Non-geospatial Science Students

Descriptions of all undergraduate courses may be found through a search of the University of Maine undergraduate catalog online (yearly changing url expunged) while the official catalog descriptions of all graduate courses may be found through a search of the graduate catalog.

UMaine Applied GIS Courses and Projects

b) Non-geospatial Science Courses Encourage Papers or Projects in Geospatial Science Topics
