INTRODUCTION

It’s a known fact that information is processed from facts and figures. Giving a spatial dimension to data and performing spatial analysis in a GIS environment enhances the interpretation which eventually speeds up implementation of programs. Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing as a decision-making tool has seen many organizations gain competitive advantage and remain relevant globally.

A geographic information system (GIS) will allow you to bring all types of data inform of layers, overlay them to perform analysis and eventually publish a map from that. Once the data is collected, participants will be equipped with analyses skills using Microsoft Excel program where techniques on handling both qualitative and quantitative data will be illustrated.

CLASS SIZE

The class size is limited to 10 participants to ensure that each participant could interact with the facilitator.

DURATION
