Geospatial Science department in the University of the South Pacific is for all the professionals and students of the Geospatial Science who work in the South Pacific Region Remote Sensing, GNSS and GIS.
We are a global network of independent knowledge hubs convening local experts in professional drone, data, robotics and AI services. We shift power with local experts and lead local solutions to accelerate social good projects in Fiji and the Pacific.

There is a variety of interesting projects and community work that we engage in collaboration with our undergraduates and teaching staff. Explore some of our recent projects to learn more about what we have to offer.
The Secret of Success
GIS is integrative; it’s visual; it’s quantitative, and it’s analytic. It has the power to organize things systematically. And it’s built on the science of geography, which is comprehensive and cuts across many disciplines. The scientific foundation of geography is the basis for the scaling up of GIS to meet the grand challenges the world faces today.

We do GIS community work. we do mapping for the ministries for surveys
This is open sourse map where we contribute to help our community
This are some of the projects that our student have done in the years of studies at the University
“We are the foundation for building better future”.

Geospatial Students Testimonials
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our students say:
Being part of GIS world was an overwhelming journey of my life so far. I was introduced to the whole new world of cartography and remote sensing which made me realize that maps are not only meant for giving directions but each map is created to tell its own story. The fun part of GIS is that anything which can be seen on the ground can be recorded, analyzed and mapped.
GIS is already changing how we think and how we act. It is built on the science of geography and, as such, it provides an integrative and comprehensive framework that cuts across many disciplines and organizations. It creating tens of thousands of important systems around the world and providing evidence of the huge contributions our field is making. I really like GIS.
When I first started looking into this magical word transformation, I found something really profound. And GIS has a lot of relevance to both of these kinds of change. GIS changes how we see things, and how we communicate them, which is driving changes in the way we understand and interact with our world. Today our world is facing serious challenges, and it’s clear that we need to work together to collectively create a better future.
Through GIS I was able to to not only challenge my self academically, but personally and professionally as well. The skills learned aim GIS here at USP are truly unrivaled to the skills that are taught in any other institution. I Would recommend anyone who is interested in Mapping and imaginary analysis
When I first learned about GIS, I was immediately intrigued as it was a combination of Geography and computer sciences both of which I really enjoy. My journey as an upcoming GIS analyst has been amazing and like the saying goes “Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.”
If you ask me what GIS was 10 years ago, I would not be able to define nor explain its importance. Today, I can tell you that GIS is an important aspect in capturing, storing and analyzing of geographical data. This means that GIS can help you get to the correct destination on time, and show you the features of any area you wish to see at the tip of your fingers.

For every different imaginable application that you can think of, if there’s a physical object that exists then there is a map that can be produced or information that can be gathered about that object and shared. It help us understand Earth and how its physical processes and features can shape human activity and vice versa.

The decision to change my course during my first year to GS has been the best decision by far. GIS is such an exciting and intriguing course as I had to learn something really new everyday. GIS is such a powerful tool in analyzing and storing spatial data. And these features plays a huge role in decision making in Fiji and the region.
