Spatial careers

Consider careers in spatial information

A career in spatial could take you anywhere. You could work in an office or spend your days outside. You could work here in Queensland or anywhere in the world! The spatial industry is evolving and is at the cutting edge of technology.

You might find yourself:

  • mapping the movement of migrating whales
  • measuring the impact of global warming
  • finding the best place for a new housing development
  • identifying the potential lava streams of a volcano
  • analysing the areas where most crimes are committed.

Students with spatial skills are in high demand with varied career pathways. The work is dynamic and challenging and the technology is leading edge.
