As location-based data becomes ubiquitous in our society, employers are recognizing the importance of mapping, GIS (Geographic Information Systems), and statistics and visualization. Spatial data requires special considerations for use and mapping is transforming how we communicate and interpret data.
Pratt Institute's Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI) has a created a modernized GIS program that teaches students both traditional, robust analytical software along with the latest interactive tools and coding skills. This, along with a heavy emphasis on design, enables students to make compelling, data-driven maps and visualizations to solve real-world problems.
