Course Brochure

COURSE OVERVIEW

This 16 hour course provides the foundation for understanding GIS, what it can do, and how others are using it. Students learn the basic functions of a GIS, GIS Terminology, and why GIS is a powerful tool for data analysis, retrieval and visualization. In course exercises, students work with ArcMap, an application within ArcGIS Desktop, to visualize geographic data, create maps, query a GIS database, perform spatial analysis using common analysis tools, and solve geographic problems using a systematic approach. This course teaches the skills and knowledge needed to take other ArcGIS Desktop courses. Class will include quizzes for each lesson, a final exam and a final project which will make use of the skills learned.
