GIS: Finding Solutions through Spatial Analysis and Mapping will take place between May 27 and May 31, 2019.
This program offers intensive training in GIS that builds on the strong expertise that GPE has developed over the years in geospatial technologies.
The certificate is designed for individuals who would like to acquire basic skills in GIS, get support for developing their own GIS project, or learn how GIS could be relevant for their professional activities. No previous GIS training is required, although a good knowledge of the Windows environment is necessary.
During this program, participants will be exposed to the basic concepts of GIS and to techniques such as GPS data collection, spatial analysis, cartographic representation and communication on the web.
They will gain experience using different free open source software such as QGIS and GRASS GIS. Guest speakers with a range of GIS-related expertise will provide input via small group lectures.
The certificate is designed to be flexible. Depending on participants’ availability and on the type of project they want to develop, two-day, three-day, four-day or five-day certificates can be completed. Participants will receive a certificate at the end of their training.
Bursaries to attend this training may be available to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and students. To obtain more information or verify eligibility, contact Program Director Angela Kross: firstname.lastname@example.org
