Program overview

Geography is no longer a dry, traditional science as it was in past centuries, but has become a vital science that relies mainly on a set of information technologies with a spatial dimension, and geographic information systems and remote sensing are one of the most important of these technologies that are widely used all over the world. The proposed program will focus mainly on these technologies in addition to addressing other technologies related to the program such as remote sensing and geographic positioning systems. Therefore, the need arises to move the science of geography from the theoretical space to the applied space to serve the development of contemporary societies, hence the idea of establishing Applied Geography Program in the College of Arts and Humanities at Al al-Bayt University
