Certificate Course in
Environmental Management using ArcGIS 

Environmental Management using ArcGIS

  • Course Description
    This course is intended for students who have basic knowledge of principles of environmental management. Environmental applications require specific skills on the part of the GIS professional. Such skills include familiarity with concepts, sources of spatial environmental data, their strength, and weaknesses. The module explores how GIS can be integrated with environmental impact assessment and support decision making. The module is designed in such a way to help students hoping to pursue a career in the environmental sector or to undertake a research project with environmental focus.
