In a broader sense, one may consider such a system to also include human users and support staff, procedures and workflows, the body of knowledge of relevant concepts and methods, and institutional organizations. Information systems.

In this high video and content quality course you will learn everything you need about the basic ArcGIS tools, starting with the basic GIS concepts, what is a Geographical Information Systems, a basic understanding of GIS data models, navigating the ArcGIS software, basic GIS tools for spatial analysis, adding data to a map, symbolizing the data, and creating the map layout!

GIS tells you where you and the points of interest are located, ie: the place on a map; what a location is, by providing some key features in the form of attributes.

By taking this GIS course, your place on the map of GIS students will be more visible. You will improve your skills, make your CV stand out from others, increase your chances of getting a great job that you are passionate about, and constantly evolve in your professional career.
