Course date: 25/01/2021 to 29/01/2021 Duration: 5 Days Course fee: USD 800, KES 65,000


MapInfo Professional is desktop Geographic Information System (GIS) software used for mapping and location analysis.  Participants will learn how to use MapInfo efficiently as they apply on various selected tasks. Participant(s) will be able to visualize, analyze, edit, interpret, understand and output spatial data to reveal relationships, patterns, and trends. MapInfo allows users to explore spatial data within a dataset, symbolize features, and create maps.

Course objectives

Upon successful completion of the course, the participant(s) will gain skills not limited to:

  • GIS functions, applications and components
  • Database organization
  • Creation of new tables work with raster layers
  • Importing external databases and join tables
  • Management of attributes and perform SQL selections
  • Management of raster and vector layers
  • Advanced skills in creating vectorial data
