Add Maps to your Armory of Data Analysis and Presentation Tools

Maps are the missing tool in so many professional’s toolkits. Maps are the ultimate communication tool whether your audience is decision makers, stakeholders or academics. Whether you have previous experience with GIS or not, it doesn't matter. Download the work files, then work along-side me in the videos using the exact same maps. You’ll soon start to see how you can apply GIS to your own projects. You get to eavesdrop as I work, and gain insight into how a GIS analyst works and thinks. The idea is to make this self-contained GIS course fun and easy, and cut out all the techo-gibberish that seems to accompany so many GIS tutorials!

What are you going to Learn in this GIS Course?

  • You'll learn how to Shade a Map to have 9 Colors – understand the need to generalize data for some audiences, how to find a color scheme for your own GIS project, and how to validate your map
  • You'll learn how to create simple time series maps
  • You'll learn to understand GIS conceptually – why maps have limitations, why GIS maps are also rich databases, what is map overlay and what are the four GIS map objects
  • You'll learn generic GIS functionality – how to open, navigate and interpret GIS maps and air photos, change how they look on screen, and understand the relationship between a GIS map and the table that lies behind it.
  • You'll learn that the shapes and colors in GIS maps and air photos can be surrogates for both socio-economic and environmental information - visual clues such as block size, watercourse shape, location, condition and even vegetation reveals all sorts of valuable information.
  • You'll learn how to use Project Files - recreate screen environments from days, months or even years ago
