Phil Potter writes an opnion piece in the University of Hawaii at Manoa paper, Ka Leo, about the importance of digital mapping in the sciences. He provides examples of student research. He introduces the topic this way:

Science is spatial, and the majority of data we collect and analyze in the natural sciences has a “where” component. Viewing data from a spatial perspective unlocks secrets that can enhance our comprehension and understanding of processes at work.

TomTom offers specialized jobs for those finishing masters and PhD students. The next cohort starts Sept 2013 and the process of applying is just like a job. The positions are all in Amsterdam, best I can tell. I could no requirements about what degree areas are of interest, but I'd guess computer science and business. I can't say I'd ever heard of this program before.
