These courses will teach you what a GIS is and what you can do with it. Working with various components of the ArcGIS platform and software, you will create GIS maps, explore and analyze the data behind the maps, and learn easy methods to share your maps and analysis results, working with different data types, geodatabases, mobile mapping and how to apply standard cartographic workflow to produce high-quality maps for both print and online use. By the end of the courses, you will have a solid understanding of how GIS maps and ArcGIS tools are used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, obtain information, and communicate that information to others.
