      Training on GIS Mapping and Spatial Data Analysis

      Please CLICK HERE to register About the Course Geographical information Systems have become an essential tool for planning, resource management and decision making. The ability of GIS to store, retrieve, analyze model and map spatial data has enhanced its application. Geographic information systems are used in infrastructure management, project beneficiary mapping, service facilities mapping, land use planning, market analysis, impact analysis and utilities management. This course aims at equipping the learners with knowledge to use GIS tools to visualize real world features, explore spatial data and analyze maps to communicate information and make decisions. Target Participants This training is designed for participants who want to apply GIS in the work to share information and make decisions. Course duration 5 Days What you will learn By the end of this course you will learn how to: Acquire, clean, and map GIS data Work with both vector and raster data Complete an entire GIS project on acquiring, processing, analyzing, and visualizing GIS data. Work with attributes and shapefiles in map making Geocode addresses to longitude and latitude coordinates Perform joins, clipping, normalization, and many more core GIS operations Work with vector and raster data Perform spatial analysis to better understand your data Create and share online maps using web GIS platforms Course Outline Introduction to GIS concepts Principles of GIS and  Remote Sensing Components of GIS Systems GIS Capabilities and Functions Spatial Data Infrastructure Introduction to GIS data Vector geometries Vector information Raster basics Data attribute table Metadata Spatial Reference Systems Map projections Coordinate system GPS system ODK and GIS Introduction to Mobile Data Collection using ODK GIS Mapping ODK collected data GIS data acquisition Extracting data from Satellite images Remote sensing data Extracting data from online GIS data sources Obtaining Data from topographic sheets Downloading Data from open street maps Map making using QGIS software Map Components Working with shapefiles and attribute data in QGIS Loading GIS Data into QGIS Vector and raster data layer Working with attributes Importing spreed sheets or CSVs Adding a base map       ·         Geocoding addresses Key Options of Geospatial Data Representations Data and layout view Layer order and transparency Symbology and label Annotations Styling geographical features Basic vector styling Basic raster styling Raster mosaicing and clipping Producing final map Spatial Analysis Point pattern analysis Heatmap in QGIS Graduated point map Density maps Offset point location Buffer analysis Join analysis Spatial join Table join Spatial query Point in polygon analysis Web Mapping Architecture of web mapping Web mapping with Google fusion tables Training Approach This course is delivered by our seasoned trainers who have vast experience as expert professionals in the respective fields of practice.
