Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) is used to solve problems associated with land administration, environment and natural resource management, planning and population studies, as well as traditional surveying and mapping applications. GIST uses GIS, remote sensing, and global positioning mapping to collect, analyze and display spatial information.

A minimum of 15 credits is required to complete the GIST minor.
