ArcGIS Course applied to Environmental Management - Online Training

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ARCGIS MA       

This course will qualify students in ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and in particular in ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcTool Box applying advanced techniques (vector and raster data models) for environmental projects.  

 

Students will become proficient ArcGIS 10 users for the design of environmental studies (environmental Impact studies, environmental documents, fauna studies, etc.). The student will be trained in creating high quality mapping, spatial multi-criteria analysis for environmental management and project alternative studies, as well as in least impact routing. 

 

Studying the online course, students will have access to our virtual learning platform (available 24 hours) where they will find the course contents, exercises, discussion forums and additional content. In this plaftorm, students are provided with real time support from the instructor (2 hours per week) whom they can contact via direct messages to solve doubts at any moment. They can also contact the instructor via email.

GOALS

  

Demonstrate the importance and usefulness of GIS in studying and working with engineering and environmental management variables

Facilitate the understanding of all the essential concepts needed for an advanced use of ArcGIS Desktop and GIS in general, but more specifically, for its use in environmental management.

Use GIS key tools for the correct management of raster and vector data models, the creation of high quality cartography and developing complex spatial analysis.

Study the existing difficulties in the design of GIS environmental studies and their resolution through exercises. 

Train students in the preparation, layout and delivery of high-quality mapping for environmental impact studies, etc.
