    Introduction

    In this course, you will learn the core of ArcGIS platform through lessons, demos and step by step exercises, starting from designing and creating maps, carry out spatial analysis, built and edit spatial databases, creating Web GIS Services and developing web applications.

    We will go through the fundamentals of GIS technology and geographic data. In this course, you will gain experience using GIS maps to visualize and explore real-world features; analyze data to answer questions and create new information; and share maps, data, and other resources so they can be easily accessed throughout the organization you are working for.

    The exercises, and mini projects will be supported by discussions to enhance technical understanding.

    The course will consist of Lectures, open discussion, lecture exercises, and description of the project assignment relative to the weekly topic. The instructor will be available to assist students with exercises, assignments, and projects during lab and/or office hours

    I’m a Subject Matter Expert and and results driven senior Enterprise GIS solutions architect,  Senior Consultant, and a ArcGIS Certified ArcGIS instructor with extensive experience of over 20 years+ using  the design, development, implementation, training of Enterprise geospatial platforms and solutions for major companies in USA and Canada, I helped many organizations to reach their business objectives by leveraging GIS capabilities to different applications for public works, health, transportation, telecommunications, Utilities and governmental departments.

    All of our courses are offered 100% online, through our intuitive Virtual Campus. Topics are taught through:

    • – Videos
    • – Interactive multimedia content
    • – Live classes
    • – Texts
    • – Case studies
    • – Evaluation exercises
    • – Additional documentation

    The content is updated in each new course edition, so that knowledge is acquired around the latest news and state-of-the-art geotechnical engineering technology.

    One of the most interesting aspects of our courses is the use of live videoconferences, in which teachers and students interact in a continuous exchange of knowledge and problem solving. In addition to this, students can make use of the platform’s forum, a meeting point where they can interact with teachers and other students.

    A tutoring system will also be established by email, which will resolve any possible doubts about the course, and which will serve as a point of connection for students with specific questions on each module.

    Students can also download all course documentation, including texts, videos, video conferences and exercises.

    By completing this course, the student will be well qualified to perform GIS tasks and applications in any of the following fields:

    • – Engineering: surveying, civil, architecture, Geomatics.
    • – Utilities: oil and gas pipelines, electrical transmission, telecommunications
    • – Business: marketing, real estate, property development.
    • – Education: colleges, universities, research institutes, libraries.
    • – Government: urban and regional planning, public administration, health, education, heritage, tourism.
    • – Natural resource management/environmental management: air, land, and water including forestry, agriculture, fisheries, mining.
    • – Research: physical and biological, social sciences, humanities.
    • – Security: public safety, law enforcement, immigration, national security, defense.
    • – Transportation: planning, systems management.

     

    At the end of the course, and as accreditation of knowledge acquired and of the technical and practical training, students who correctly complete the corresponding evaluation tests of the geotechnical engineering course will obtain an academic certificate issued by Ingeoexpert. This digital certificate is protected by Blockchain technology, making it unique and tamper-proof, thus enabling companies to verify its authenticity.

    It can also be downloaded by students, forwarded by email and shared on social networks, as well as embedded on any website. You can see an example here.
