As part of Lakeland's geospatial program, students are required to secure an internship where they work for 100 hours under the direction of a qualified professional in geospatial technology. Students will work in a private or public agency with a focus on geospatial technology functions, including data acquisition, management, report and map making, or other geospatial tasks.

Internship Projects

As part of their internships, Lakeland students are given the opportunity to work on many interesting projects that showcase their talents as well as the various uses of GIS. A few of those projects are featured below.
