Geographic information systems are used in infrastructure management, project beneficiary mapping, service facilities mapping, land use planning, market analysis, impact analysis and utilities management.

Geographical information Systems have become an essential tool for planning, resource management and decision making. The ability of GIS to store, retrieve, analyze model and map spatial data has enhanced its application.

This course aims at equipping the learners with knowledge to use GIS tools to visualize real world features, explore spatial data and analyze maps to communicate information and make decisions.

 

Who Should Attend?

This training is designed for participants who want to apply GIS in the work to share information and make decisions.
