Join Jason VanHorn for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of GIS on the Web.
So what do you need to know before watching this course? Everything I show you about mapping in this course can be done with free online sources. Since we will use Google, you should get a Google account. Just visit google.com and chose to sign in, in the upper right. Then, you can sign in with an existing account, or create your own new account. Also, I recommend you download and install Google Earth to your computer. This will become important when we begin building geographic layers later in this course.
Other than those few requirements, I only ask you join me in excitement, as I show you how to do GIS on the web.
