A ten-week course to learn the basics of GIS technologies (Geographic Information Systems), with a focus on the industry-standard ArcGIS platform by ESRI. Classes will be held every Thursday from March 23rd-May 25th from 6:00-8:00 PM.
The course will cover:
We will utilize lecture, hands on tutorials in the program, readings and application with a Community Project and Partner.
What you need:
– All students are required to purchase the book/software package: “GIS Tutorial 1, 10.3 Edition” by Kurland and Gorr. Be sure to purchase a NEW book, as it comes with a 6-month trial of the software you will need for the course. Alternatively, if you would like to purchase a personal copy of the software, ESRI offers a personal license for $100/year though the text will still be required.
What to bring to class:
– All students should plan to provide their own Laptop and ArcGIS software for the course.This software only working in the Windows Operating System, if you have a Mac, you can run a Windows virtual machine through your Mac or try and borrow a PC
If I don’t own a laptop, can I borrow one?
– There are 3 desktops on location (with ArcGIS installed) for students who cannot provide their own computer but this means you will only be able to work during the class hours.
