Course Description

Knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an increasingly sought after skill in industries from agriculture to public health. This course starts by introducing participants to the basics of spatial modeling. It explains vector and raster spatial data models, and then discusses in depth, issues such as data acquisition, the basics of data-gathering instrumentation, data sources, and data quality.

Course Objectives

  • Learning common data storage mechanisms within GIS
  • Creating vector and raster data models
  • Creating new data through the process of digitizing
  • Exploring datasets and assess them for quality and uncertainty
  • Creating web maps quickly
