When Geographic Information Systems (GIS) meet some of the world's most exciting web-mapping technology, such as Google Maps, you get richer, more interactive maps and better insights into your data. GIS on the web means using tools like Google Maps, Bing Maps, and Esri to create map mashups: multilayered visualizations that combine data from multiple sources. In this course, Jason VanHorn shows how to use these tools to analyze geodata and create interactive, mobile-ready maps that communicate your ideas better than ever before.
Hello. I'm doctor Jason VanHorn and welcome to GIS on the Web. GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. In this course I will teach you how to make maps using freely available tools online. I will show you how to build some awesome maps that are interactive, deployable to smartphones or tablets, and easy to incorporate into presentations. From the world of map mash-ups in Google to ArcGIS online, I will give you the practical tools you need to succeed in your projects.
So if you are completely new to the world of mapping or you've been doing mapping professionally for a while, by the end of this course you will be able to deploy web-based maps to communicate your ideas and knowledge in our fast-paced, globalized world. So let's get started now with GIS on the Web.
