Course: Geographic Information System (GIS)

Duration: 20 hours

Time: 1 hour/day(Theory+Practical)

GIS training center in kathmandu



Geographic Information System (GIS) deals with the analysis and management of geographic information. This course offers an introduction to methods of managing and processing geographic information. Emphasis will be placed on the nature of geographic information, data models and structures for geographic information, geographic data input, data manipulation and data storage, spatial analytic and modeling techniques, and error analysis. The course is made of two components: lectures and labs. In the lectures, the conceptual elements of the above topics will be discussed. The labs are designed in such a way that students will gain first-hand experience in data input, data management, data analyses, and result presentation in a geographical information system. Students must be clear that this is not a class specifically on any particular GIS software. It is a course on the underlying theory and concepts in GIS. The understanding of these concepts and theories will help you to perform spatial analysis in a GIS system properly and efficiently

Organizations use ArcGIS Online to facilitate collaboration and efficient access to maps and other GIS resources. This course shows how to publish data and map layers directly to ArcGIS Online as services, then use those services to quickly build a web map. You will also learn how to turn a web map into a web app to provide a focused experience for your audience. Access to an ArcGIS Online organizational account is needed to complete course exercises.

Learn How To

  • Publish hosted feature services and tiled map services to ArcGIS Online.
  • Quickly create and configure a web map using the ArcGIS Online map viewer.
  • Use an ArcGIS Online template to easily share a web map as a web app.
  • Choose appropriate sharing levels to accommodate the intended users of a web map or web app.

Software Requirements

To complete course exercises, you need the following:

  • ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop or ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop (Basic, Standard, or Advanced)
  • ArcGIS Online Organizational Account
    • Publisher role or equivalent
    • Approximate number of service credits consumed: 5 (based on current service credit rates; rates subject to change)

LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

a) Define GIS

b) Use GIS to identify, explore, understand, and solve spatial problems

c) Demonstrate GIS modeling skills

d) Demonstrate critical thinking skills in solving geospatial problems.

e) Design and implement a GIS project

f) Demonstrate competency with the ArcMap software to enhance and interpret data

g) Use queries in GIS Analysis

h) Formulate applications of GIS technology.
