Be at the forefront of a rapidly growing industry

Imagine deploying drones to assess disaster damage and gather data that can be instantly used to take action. Helping self-driving cars go where they’re supposed to go. Or taking augmented reality to a level where it could actually help solve problems in the real world. These are just a few of many applications made possible by geo-information science and earth observation (GEO).

A healthy job market

From traditional map-making to creating modern data-driven solutions to real-world problems, this field offers an incredible variety of possible applications. That certainly helps to explain why a US Department of Labor report identified this industry as one with a projected job outlook that is much higher than average.

According to the new market research report "Geospatial Analytics Market" published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Geospatial Analytics Market size is projected to grow from USD 52.6 billion in 2020 to USD 96.3 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.9% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the Geospatial Analytics Market include the increasing number of AI and ML-based GIS solutions, development of smart cities and urbanization, increased deployment of IoT sensors across locations, and advancement of big data analytics for organizations by improving the workflow

Logically the job market, in the private and (semi-)public sector as well as academia, is expected to grow accordingly.
