INTRODUCTION

It’s a known fact that information is processed from facts and figures; we also agree that if data is not well managed it can be overwhelming. Giving a spatial dimension to data and performing spatial analysis in a GIS environment speeds interpretation visualization which eventually speeds up implementation of programs.

Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing as a decision making tool has seen many organizations gain competitive advantage and remain relevant globally. To make timely decisions requires not only innovative ways to access accurate and real time information, but also tools to help present the information in ways that are useful.

Everything that happens in this world has a spatial dimension and this has made GIS applicable across all fields e.g. in agriculture, business, forestry, crime, mining, health, transport and communications, utility management, climate change, planning etc. A geographic information system (GIS) will allow you to bring all types of data inform of layers, overlay them to perform analysis and eventually publish a map from that.

This main objective of this course is to help our client understand how well they can apply GIS and Remote Sensing in their day to day activities of their organization. The course will be hands-on exercises in Quantum GIS (QGIS).

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of course participants should be able to:

·         Develop and implement a GIS project

·         Master the principles and concepts of GIS and RS

·         Acquire, manipulate, save the data sources in a GIS

·         Understand how GIS database works and how to update

·         Lear how to edit data in GIS

·         Learn map design ,symbolization and   publishing

·         Mastering the output and dissemination of results of a GIS project.

·         Present the software and data sources available on the current GIS market

·         Learn digital image processing techniques

·         Become familiar with specific functionality to the GIS: “Spatial Analysis”
