Training on: Essential Skills for GIS and Mapping Professionals (August 2017)2017-07-16
A geographic information system (GIS) is the system that captures, stores, analyzes, manages, and presents data with reference to geographic location data. The GIS functionalities could be categorized into three main aspects including GIS database, GIS analysis, and GIS visualization.
In the simplest terms, GIS is a tool that could be used to transform geographic data into useful information or knowledge for better decision making. GIS could be used in many disciplines such as archaeology, geography, public utility management, natural resource management, precision agriculture, urban planning, emergency management, landscape architecture, navigation, real estate, public health, crime mapping, national defense, and sustainable development.
The main purpose of this training is to equip participants with essential theoretical knowledge and practical skills with ArcGIS for Desktop 10.5 software needed to perform most of everyday GIS tasks in the above-mentioned disciplines.
Six modules covering three main aspects of GIS (Geodatabase, GIS Analysis, and Geovisualization) that will be presented and discussed in the training class include:
· Module 01: Introducing GIS concepts, ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcToolbox
· Module 02: Working with map symbology and labels
· Module 03: Managing GIS coordinate systems
· Module 04: Managing GIS databases
· Module 05: Creating professional-looking maps
· Module 06: Performing GIS analysis
The key topics for each module of the training can be found at the last section of this announcement. The topics were carefully selected ranging from basic to advanced levels based on working experiences of the trainer and the training courses that he has done for over 200 people.
