Training Course on Geographic Information System (GIS) using ArcGIS or QGIS

Introduction This training introduces students to both the social and technical aspects of digital mapping. Students will learn fundamental concepts and techniques in cartography and GIS, including file types, data classification, projections and coordinate systems and elementary analytical techniques in a range of desktop and web-based mapping platforms. In addition to providing the fundamental technical competencies necessary to create maps, students will develop the critical awareness required to effectively communicate complex social processes through maps. Duration 5 Days Who should apply? Government, Environment, Data analysis, Retailing, Fleet management, Marketing, Property development, Emergency response, Transport, Military defense, Healthcare, Oil and gas, Agriculture, mining, disaster risk management Forestry, M&E , WASH, Engineers, Telecommunications Utilities, geographers, teachers, journalists, students etc. Learning Objectives Upon course completion, participants should be able to: i. Define and differentiate between variety of spatial data models and formats ii. Explain and apply the basics of representation in GIS, including using vector and raster data formats, determining appropriate geographic coordinate system for a given spatial data file and applying the appropriate geographic projection to a map type and spatial scale iii. Manipulate geospatial datasets (e.g. cleaning, joining, querying, extracting) iv. Apply appropriate thematic map symbology to represent geographic phenomena v. Produce static map products that integrate multiple data types and analytical methods vi. Obtain geospatial data from a variety of online sources and integrate into mapping processes vii. Integrate desktop GIS procedures with web-based mapping platforms Course Content Module 1: Introduction, cartography and GIS, and creating maps in QGIS a.
