INTRODUCTION

With information society, creation, distribution, integration and manipulation of information has become a significant economic, political, and cultural activity. It’s a known fact that information is processed from facts and figures; we also agree that if data is not well managed it can be overwhelming. Giving a spatial dimension to data and performing spatial analysis in a GIS environment speeds interpretation visualization which eventually speeds up implementation of programs.

This training workshop is aimed at helping our client understand how well they can apply GIS and RS in their day to day running of their organization. The course will be offered in a mixture of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises in Quantum GIS (QGIS).

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Government, Environment, Data analysis, Retailing, Fleet management, Marketing, Property development, Emergency response, Transport, Military defense, Healthcare, Oil and gas, Agriculture, mining, disaster risk management Forestry, M&E ,WASH, Engineers, Telecommunications Utilities, geographers, teachers, journalists, students etc.
