GIS using ArcGIS Desktop

Course date: 25/11/2019 to 06/12/2019 Duration: 10 Days Course fee: USD 1,600, KES 130,000

INTRODUCTION

A GIS (Geographic Information System) is a powerful tool used for computerized mapping and spatial analysis. A GIS provides functionality to capture, store, query, analyze, display and output geographic information. This course introduces GIS concepts and ArcGIS tools used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, and communicate information. Using ArcMap and ArcGIS Online, the participants will work with GIS maps, explore data, and analyze maps and data as you learn fundamental concepts that underlie GIS technology.
