Introducing the new onGEO Professional Certificate in Geospatial Data Analytics and Visualization

December 21, 2023

onGEO is launching a new professional certificate in Geospatial Data Analytics and Visualization in January 2024

The onGEO group is proud to announce the official launch of our newest professional certificate offering. The online Geospatial Data Analytics & Visualization Certificate aims to advance the geospatial tools & technology skill-set of professionals currently working in fields that use geospatial technologies. It is also an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to revamp their current career, earn continuing education or teaching credits, or simply learn new and marketable skills.

The online Geospatial Data Analytics & Visualization Certificate consists of four (core) fully online courses that are each delivered in 7-week sessions. This means that a professional certificate can easily be earned in two semesters (if courses are taken one at a time) or faster (if courses are taken concurrently).

These core courses cover topics ranging from map design, interactive and temporal mapping, geovisualization, spatial data analytics, spatial statistics, geoprocessing, geospatial analysis, and much more. In addition to content-based modules, each course features a series of online labs designed to give students hands-on experience using geospatial technologies and improve technical competency.


Registration open for onGEO Session 124 (8 January to 23 February 2024)

In addition, registration is now open for the next session of online professional development courses. These courses can be taken to develop new skills, receive continuing education credits, or earn a Professional Certificate in GIS or Geospatial Data Analytics & Visualization, or both. Each certificate is earned by completing four core courses. Each of these non-credit core courses is 7 weeks long, and completed fully online. In addition, the MSU onGEO group offers several elective courses.
