"Careers in Space" provides great insight into Spatial Careers, and the vast range of professions that require the use of Spatial thinking and Spatial information!
Spatial thinking is a skill used in everyday life, the workplace, and science to solve problems using concepts of space, visualization, and reasoning. By visualizing relationships of spatial structures in terms of locations, distances, directions, shapes, and patterns we can understand and analyze the properties of objects and relationships between objects.
This website, created by the University of Kentucky’s Tracy Farmer Institute for Sustainability and the Environment, College of Agriculture, and NSF-ITEST, gives an insight to spatial careers and provides information on what spatial skills are needed for each "space" and its basic academic preparation, a list of careers in each space, and some career profiles of people who work in each space.
What exactly do we mean by " Space " ?
To us, "space" is more than the area that starts about 300 miles up and goes on forever thereafter. "Space" is literally space. It is all the areas in which we live, work, play, and explore.
On this website an insight is provided for Inner Space, or the area inside every organism’s body; Outer Space, or the area which houses all the celestial bodies; Earth Space, or all the terrestrial areas on our planet; Marine Space, or the area composed of all the bodies of water on Earth; Design Space, the area of architecture and the artist’s perspective; and finally Business Space, which houses all the spatial characteristics of a business from the tracking of orders to expanding internationally.
