Geographic information systems (GIS) have changed the way many governments and organizations conduct business, solve problems, and plan for the future. This course provides a foundation for understanding what a geographic information system is and the possibilities it offers for discovering patterns, relationships, and trends. You learn how GIS maps are different from other types of paper and digital maps, what makes the data used in a GIS unique, and how to use GIS software to obtain information and create meaningful maps. In interactive exercises and activities throughout the course, you work with ArcGIS software and see how a GIS supports problem solving in many different contexts.
This course is designed for those with no GIS background or experience who want to learn the basic features of a GIS and a geographic approach to solving problems.
You should know how to use Windows-based software for basic file management and browsing.
