Certificate Course in ArcGIS with Urban Studies & Planning - Advance

ArcGIS/Q-GIS, Microstation, and LPS are GIS is the most popular software available to perform any GIS type work. This course is geared toward understanding the fundamental concepts of:   


Geographic Information Science, Remote Sensing, and Cartography.

Geoprocessing, Geo-referencing, and Spatial Analysis.

Extracting information from spatial imagery and Topo Maps.

Analyze spatial data   

The candidate(s) will be made familiar with the fundamental concepts of GIS, remote sensing, and definitions such as spatial imagery, digital image, and digital image processing/analysis, etc. amongst others. Different variety of spatial data will be introduced and worked upon. Introduction to spatial analysis will provide an understanding for opting appropriate analysis tools for a specific project.
