RMIT University presents
I studied geospatial science at RMIT.
It's all about geography and location, measuring, mapping and modelling and it involves a range of disciplines including surveying cartography and design.
At RMIT I got lots of experience using mapping and design software and completed an industry placement.
I've just started my career as a geographical systems analyst working closely with a team to analyse spatial data. A typical day for me is working on geo database layers using specialised software.
I really enjoy working on the data and figuring out how things are connected.
I also enjoy the creative side of making a map, choosing colours so the map looks good and seeing how it all fits together.
I'm excited to see where the future takes geospatial science as it moves further into 3D.
From the technical to the creative there's lots to like.
Geospatial science is the understanding of where things are and how they're connected.
You need to have a love for maps and an ability to think spatially to succeed and it definitely helps to have a passion for the physical world.
