Master of Science in Geospatial Intelligence
The online Master of Science in Geospatial Intelligence at Johns Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs provides students with the concepts, models, experience and learning to lead and shape this emerging discipline.

The MS in Geospatial Intelligence program combines three fields of study: the history of geospatial intelligence, the science and mathematics of digital geography and its related databases, and the art of converting geospatial data into written, spoken and visual intelligence. Students will analyze historical intelligence examples to understand the development of the concepts and practices behind collection, analysis, reporting and technology. They will also tackle current challenges in the industry, including the challenges of new sensors and the development of new non-governmental geospatial communities.
