This course is designed as an introduction to web GIS, exposing students to the programming concepts underlying web-based mapping applications. This course will focus on the basics of web GIS architecture, web technologies, web services, web mapping Application Programming Interfaces (API&,#146,s) and mashups. This course is designed to increase students&,#146, understanding of developing web applications from start to finish. The course will focus on the most widely used API&,#146,s at the time.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a computerized database management system for capture, storage, retrieval, analysis and display of geographic information. Gain the knowledge and practical skills necessary to develop and manage geographic information projects and to interpret and implement GIS as a decision support system. You will learn how to develop substantial theoretical and practical competencies relating to GIS, develop a foundational understanding of and skill in using industry-standard software, and demonstrate to employers the ability to perform GIS tasks at the entry level.
Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program will teach you how to turn maps into super sources of information. You will learn how to understand the technical process behind GIS, use basic GIS tools, develop a portfolio of GIS work, create and manage a GIS database, and design and complete GIS projects. You will receive hands-on training utilizing up-to-date computer hardware and software, and learn theories and skills to manage GIS projects.
