INTRODUCTION
A GIS (Geographic Information System) is a powerful tool used for computerized mapping and spatial analysis. A GIS provides functionality to capture, store, query, analyze, display and output geographic information. This course introduces GIS concepts and ArcGIS tools used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, and communicate information. Using ArcMap and ArcGIS Online, the participants will work with GIS maps, explore data, and analyze maps and data as you learn fundamental concepts that underlie GIS technology.
DURATION
10 days
COURSE OBJECTIVES
• Find and organize geographic data and other content for a mapping project.
• Display features on a GIS map and access information about them.
• Perform spatial analysis to answer questions.
• Share GIS maps and analysis results.
