to use GIS in your workplace
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is one of
the fastest growing technologies in the world. GIS is the tool
of the future for anyone
working with “locations.” It provides tools for analyzing
and displaying data in many professions and disciplines, and GIS
is the tool that makes GPS and location based services work.
College is offering an "Introduction to
Geographic Information Systems" this fall. The reach of GIS
is expanding into more facets of farm and business work. This class
is especially beneficial for surveyors, city planners, city works
(water & sewer, transportation, streets), developers, governmental
agencies, and farmers.
This three-credit hour course is an introduction to geographic
information systems (GIS). The applications of GIS, development,
components, and data types will be discussed. The use of GIS software
(ESRI-ArcMap) will be introduced as well as the processes and procedures
to capture, acquire, and analyze and manipulate data sets. Real
life applications of GIS will be developed. Spatial data display
and spatial analysis will also be introduced.
