Geographical Information Systems have become essential tools for planning, resource management and decision-making. The ability of Geographical Information Systems tools to store, retrieve, analyze, model and map spatial data has enhanced its application. Geographic information systems are used in infrastructure management, project beneficiary mapping, service facilities mapping, land use planning, market analysis, impact analysis and utilities management.

Among GIS tools, ArcGIS is one of the most used GIS software worldwide, the most stable and versatile recommended by most users. ArcGIS combines the science of geography with powerful GIS technology and provides contextual tools for data visualization, mapping, and spatial analysis, connecting and combining information from varied sources, offering complex capabilities to explore and gain knowledge, that will lead to informed decisions in the different research fields.

This course will equip the participants with insights, knowledge, and skills on how to use GIS tools to visualize real world features, explore spatial data and analyze maps to explore data in new ways and gain deeper understanding enabling information flow and appropriate decision-making.

Target Participants

This course is ideal for Cartographers, GIS users and experts, Geographers, IT experts, Web Developers, Geoscientists, Surveyors, Software Engineers, Database and System Administrators, Monitoring and Evaluation experts and will provide valuable information in the development of high-quality mapping products.

Course Duration

Online     7 Days

Classroom-based     5 Days
