Description

This course gives you an introduction to the basic concepts of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with emphasis on how GIS is used by land surveyors. GIS is a database with a geographical component. You will be presented with many examples in this course, and descriptions about what GIS can do and how it is used. We are living in the data age and this course is designed to get you to think about how GIS could be an effective tool for managing data. The cost of GIS ranges from free to very expensive and this course will also explain how you can get started using GIS.
