Geographic information systems (GIS) provide the ability to automate map production and to integrate earth imagery with other data to solve geographic problems. Results can be displayed in a variety of ways including new maps, tables, charts, or all of these in combination. GIS is a widely-available and affordable technology which can be used by nearly every corporation, governmental agency, or non-profit organization.
This certificate is designed for practitioners who are the managers, technical professionals, and support staff responsible for managing and using GIS. The certificate is also designed to appeal to people from varying disciplines such as Urban Planning, Civil and Transportation Engineering, Resources and Business.
The certificate is recognized by the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association.
