** Last chance to book **

Course Description

Geographic Information Systems have become key in most corporate scenarios; 80% of all data now has a spatial element. Reap potential rewards in your business by learning about the power of GIS

Introduction to GIS (2 days).This action packed course is structured to maximise your knowledge of GIS. Starting at the very basics, you will be taken through the key elements of a GIS and leave with the ability to independently tackle real world spatial problems within your corporate environment.

Intermediate GIS (2 days).You know the basics of GIS, but there is so much more functionality which could enhance your work and make it more efficient. This course will provide you with the additional knowledge to be able to use many of the extensions available within a GIS and provide you with the skills to use some of the more advanced features of GIS software.

Spatial Analysis (1 day). Maps are great for conveying information but managers want quantitative values which they can be confident in. By learning how to analyse your data using spatial statistics and geospatial methods, you can quantify the geographical patterns and trends found. This course will introduce some of the methods used by a modern GIS, firstly introducing the concepts in a non mathematical manner, then moving on to the practical application through a number of real world exercises.
