GIS Development Training Course Overview

In our increasingly interconnected world, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become the bedrock of data-driven decision-making. GIS is more than just a mapping tool; it's a powerful framework that enables the collection, management, analysis, and visualisation of spatial data. By integrating various data types and harnessing the power of spatial location, GIS transforms layers of information into insightful maps and 3D scenes.

Proficiency in GIS is invaluable for professionals across diverse domains. Urban planners, environmental scientists, data analysts, disaster management experts, and anyone dealing with location-based data can benefit significantly from mastering GIS. In a world where location data plays a pivotal role, GIS empowers professionals to make informed decisions, optimise resource allocation, and visualise complex information in a spatial context.

In this intensive 1-day GIS Development Training course, delegates will embark on a journey through the fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems. They will explore the realm of spatial analysis and cartography, gaining insights into the core concepts of GIS. Delegates will become familiar with ArcGIS, the leading software tool in the GIS domain, and understand how GIS has evolved from traditional paper maps to globally integrated electronic software packages.

Course Objectives

  • To provide a comprehensive understanding of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) fundamentals
  • To explore the realm of spatial analysis and cartography within the GIS domain
  • To familiarise delegates with ArcGIS, the leading software tool for GIS
  • To demonstrate the evolution of GIS from traditional paper maps to electronic software packages
  • To equip delegates with the knowledge to analyse data using geoprocessing tools
  • To guide delegates in creating and using map packages, uploading them to ArcGIS online, and creating layer files and packages

Upon completion of this course, delegates will possess a solid understanding of GIS fundamentals and proficiency in using ArcGIS, the industry-leading software. They will be able to analyse spatial data, create insightful maps, and leverage GIS capabilities for informed decision-making.
