Course: Training in GIS



This course teaches the basic concepts and basic functions of GIS, the characteristics of GIS maps, and the structure of a GIS database. Through this course, the trainee learns to develop basic skills by working with "ArcGIS" to display geographic data, create maps, and query databases. GIS data, and analyze data using analysis tools provided by the program.
