Essential difference between the minor GIS and the minor EO is that GIS is focusing on the storage, use and visualization of geo-information, whereas EO is focusing on how to acquire geo-information at various scales and for different purposes. In projects in the GIS minor students how to use existing data for a particular application. In EO the focus is on how to acquire and process data in order to fill the needs for local, regional or global issues.
