Geographical Information System(GIS)

Have you ever wondered how the “google maps” application on your phone works? Well, if you didn’t know, it all works because of something called the Geographical Information System (GIS). In a nutshell, GIS programming is a way of manipulating terrestrial information on a digital map. Simply put, it describes how to take a specific part of geography and present it on an electronic device.

About Course

GIS programming is an intermediatory level course that introduces students to Geographical components, manipulations and software level implementations. There are tons of real-world data hidden within geography. If looked closer, it can be used to detect patterns, changes, and problems. GIS Programming is basically taking these spatial data, analyzing them, and then using them to construct a digital framework that solves real-time problems. By the end of this course, you will have learned: • Fundamentals and advanced implementations of GIS Programming • Principles of Remote Sensing (RS), Cartography and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) • Basic layouts of a custom map and ARC maps and coordinate systems • Analysis of Geographical data in raster and vector formats • Designing files, editing layers, and adding features using ArcMap
