Learning GIS (geographical information systems) requires training in cartography, database management, and spatial analysis. But once you've built a solid foundation in the basics, how do you approach GIS challenges in the real world? Dr. Jason VanHorn is here to help you master practical GIS scenarios, and answers the 7 most common questions he receives from other GIS professionals, including: Where can I get quality data? How do I create projections? What's an inexpensive solution for collecting geospatial data? and Where can I find a GIS job?
Hi, I'm Dr. Jason VanHorn and welcome to Real-World GIS. Geographic Information Systems or GIS, is a way to approach mapping and spacial analysis using a computer environment. This course begins by introducing the top seven questions that are common in the use of GIS. I'll start with a short overview, that allows you to jump right in by giving you a context and framework for what is discussed in this course. Then I'll go step by step to explore each question and best practice for solutions and understanding, so you'll be able to successfully complete work in GIS.
So whether you are completely new to GIS, and just getting started or if you've been doing this for a while, by the end of the course, you will be equipped to handle a robust set of challenges that come your way in the fascinating world of GIS. So let's get started with Real-World GIS
