Description of the Software:-
A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data. GIS software lets you produce maps and other graphic displays of geographic information for analysis and presentation. Geographic information systems are utilized in multiple technologies, processes, techniques and methods. It is attached to various operations and numerous applications that relate to: engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business. For this reason, GIS and location intelligence applications are at the foundation of location-enabled services that rely on geographic analysis and visualization. With GIS technology, people can compare the locations of different things in order to discover how they relate to each other.
Description of The Course:-
This course is oriented towards achieving a conceptual understanding of how web technologies work together to form a web application that can be used to distribute, collect, or analyze geospatial data. By the end of the course, you will feel confident and completely understand the GIS technology and how to use GIS software to make maps. You will learn about vector and raster formats used in GIS. You will also learn about GPS and remote sensing technologies which are tightly related to geographic information systems. The course also covers map projections which can become the nightmare of a GIS project if they are not properly understood
- INFORMATION MANAGEMENT – Handling, compiling and distribution of information have been made easy thanks to GIS. These products provide a framework for creating a blueprint for action, understanding it and prescribing the action. GIS is fast becoming an enterprise for information systems. Geography is emerging as a new way to organize and manage information.
- IMPROVED DECISION MAKING – GIS has led to a better decision making. It has enhanced our ability to make better decisions about the location of places.
- MAPPING – GIS has made mapping and charting easier. GIS is a vital tool for topographic, aeronautical and nautical mapping and charting agencies.
- MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES – GIS helps pinpoint the exact location of the mineral resource and quantity. This information allows for proper planning and management.
