Defining What Matters

Geospatial Technology

The Bronx Community College Geospatial Center of the CREST Institute (BGCCI) is a collaboration between Bronx Community College of The City University of New York and CUNY Remote Sensing Earth System (CREST) Institute. Geospatial technology is an emerging technology that facilitates location-based analysis of geographical data acquired from a wide array of sources, including sensors mounted on platforms such as satellites and aircraft. This technology has applications essential to most aspects of daily modern life. As a result, geospatial technologies have been growing at an exponential rate, leading to a high demand for skilled technicians. According to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the geospatial industry is facing critical shortages of labor skilled in the field. This presents an ideal opportunity for Bronx Community College — through the BCC Geospatial Center of the CREST Institute — to offer education and training in this emerging field of study.
