Professional GIS Training

Course description:

A geographic information system (GIS) is a powerful tool for displaying, exploring, and analyzing geographic data. Any data that has a geographic component (including most data in the Earth sciences and environmental sciences) can benefit from GIS. Formerly a tool employed primarily by city planners, conservationists, utilities, and developers, GIS is becoming increasingly ubiquitous in geology and even in non-traditional fields such as the social sciences. Familiarity with GIS can be a decided advantage in todayís job market.

Course objectives:
  • Learn how geographic data is created, stored, projected, and analyzed
  • Become proficient with ArcGIS 9 software
  • Understand how to answer questions about spatial relationships using GIS
  • Use GIS concepts to advance your own research†
