<-- Online GIS Degrees & Certificates

Emporia State University Graduate Theses and Research

Graduate students at Emporia State University have utilized resources of the geospatial analysis program for M.S. thesis and GSA graduate research projects. These projects have employed geographic information system (GIS), aerial photography, satellite imagery, field spectroscopy, and global positioning system (GPS) technology to collect, process, and interpret geospatial data. Research subject areas include: archaeology, wildlife biology, geology, hydrology, geomorphology, forestry and wetland environments, soils, and tectonics.
