Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

This programme is where Geography meets mathematics and science! Another name for Geographic Science is Geomatics. Learn how to produce maps and measure all sorts of objects and features on the land.

Geographic Science involves three fields of activity - Spatial Data Provision – measuring the land, Spatial Information Management and Land Management.

Spatial Data Provision involves the collection of data relating to the Earth (spatial data). Instruments such as GPS receivers, terrestrial airborne and spaceborne cameras and scanners, electronic distance and angle measuring instruments (total stations) and much more, are used to collect precise data which is then processed to create digital maps and 3D models of our landscape for development, monitoring and planning. We collect and apply these data on construction sites, on the land, offshore and underground to meet the needs of a range of users.

Spatial Information Management takes the collected data and generates optimised geographical information for a wide range of applications. This involves 3D modelling, computer visualisation, analysis in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and delivery of the results and products to the client.

Land Management deals with the four main national Land Administration systems - Land Value for Taxation, Land Tenure for Ownership of Property, Land Use for Planning, and Land Development for Construction and Conservation.
