Geospatial Technology

Geography, maps, technology, and computers are your thing. When you look at a map, it can tell a story, encourage exploration, inspire change, and solve problems.

For some, it's a calling rather than a job. At Harford, you'll acquire and master the skills and software you need to pursue a career in the growing geospatial technology field.
