Introduction to GIS
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS have become a tool with widespread use in developmental applications. The power of a GIS can have a positive influence in community based planning and scientific decision making for developmental activities.
In this class, you will learn about basic GIS concepts including spatial data structures, data sources and transfer methods, projections and coordinate systems, geo-referencing, metadata, supporting software, global positioning systems, the integration of remote sensing and GIS, as well as fundamental spatial analysis techniques such as overlay, extraction, and interpolation. Concepts presented in lecture will be put into practice through hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing the GIS software product like: ArcGIS, AutoCAD Map, QGIS, GRASS and ERDAS
After completing the course you will be able to:
Describe what is GIS? Why the data in GIS called geo referenced? GIS related domains.
Describe how GIS has being utilized in decision support system and real world applications.
Understand the basic concepts of geography necessary to efficiently and accurately use GIS technology.
Understand the data display and cartographical methods
Explore and visualize geo-database
Define datum and geographic, projected coordinate system and their types
Define and design the GIS data model such as vector, rater, TIN and attribute
Describe application of various data models
Define Spatial Data Infrastructure
Describe various source for data and data acquisition terminologies in GIS
Describe the topological relationship of spatial data
Understand source of error in data acquisition and FIX the error using GIS software tools
Make use of attribute query and spatial query in complex analysis contexts
Define vector, raster, network and surface analysis and their application
Understand the concepts of Global Positioning System and how it works
Understand the concepts of Aerial surveying and how it works
Understand the concepts of Remote Sensing and how it works
Understand the technical language of GIS.
Understand the GIS career opportunities in current marketplace
Define the geospatial industrial workflows
Understand the open source and propriety GIS software vendors worldwide
Perform various GIS tasks such as data modeling, geo-database creation, visualization, digitization, map clean up, topology, geo-referencing, data linking, symbology, geo-processing, overlay analysis and map composition in most popular GIS packages like ArcGIS Desktop 10.0.
