First, you'll learn ways to find authoritative GIS data, or create your own. Next, you'll explore techniques for visualizing GIS data on an interactive map. After that, you'll learn ways to analyze GIS data to expose spatial relationships and trends. Finally, you'll discover how sharing GIS data and apps can increase their value for solving real-world problems. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge needed to begin harnessing the power of GIS in your own projects.
