Rutgers University has created a Professional Certificate Program in Geomatics. Participants can take a series of courses to develop GIS skills which can be applied to their work. NJDEP has entered into a partnership where these courses are offered during the day in the Trenton area.

"Geomatics" -- are computer technology tools that streamline your land use, urban and environmental planning and other decision-making processes. It centers on the use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) in conjunction with the related technologies of GPS (Global Positions Systems), spatial database management, Internet/Intranet applications for distributing geospatial information, remote sensing and photogrammetry.

The Geomatics Certificate program is ideal for professionals that are delving into GIS but have formal degrees in other areas of expertise. It provides a broad range of exposure to Geomatics technology and provides a base upon which to measure GIS education in the state.

Upcoming courses include the following:

The Geomatics certificate program has been temporarily halted due to budget constraints. BGIS is hopeful to renew the program for FY2011.

Program updates will be announced via the GIS User email group and at GIS User Group meetings.
