INTRODUCTION

This course will equip individuals with the skills and knowledge to build web based GIS applications. GIS systems capture, store, check, and display data with respect to specific locations on the Earth’s surface. The GIS technologies are flexible, meaning they are applicable in almost every field. GIS is especially beneficial to those working in the e-government, e-business, and e-science fields.
