Geographical Information Systems & Remote sensing Course
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become key in project management; with 80% of all data
having a spatial element. GIS and GPS are rapidly evolving to become standard tools, influencing decision
making in various sectors and in project management. There is however a severe shortage of persons who
are trained to use these techniques in various projects.
This action packed course is structured to maximize your knowledge of GIS. You will be taken through
theoretical concepts and comprehensive hands-on training associated with GIS and GPS, software and
hardware requirements for GIS, data input, spatial database creation, principles of GIS spatial analysis,
production of GIS outputs and potential applications of GIS. All practicums will be done using Quantum
Quantum GIS (QGIS) is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System. It runs on Windows,
Linux, Unix and Mac OSX and supports numerous vector, raster, and database formats and functionalities.
