Learn about the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and let curiosity be your guide! Join us as we explore concepts behind spatial analysis and gain some practical skills in GIS software.
This interactive, flash course on geographic information systems is open to all, but also intended for civil servants or practitioners in education policy, particularly those who work to support greater access (enrollment and attendance) to secondary schools.
It’s easy to participate. All you need is interest in geographic methods/accessibility analysis and access to a computer and open source software QGIS. Some background in GIS/Geography would be helpful, but is not essential.
We’ll tailor this course to you. After completing the course, you can expect to be able to explain how GIS can help you make smarter decisions, explain how GIS can be used to analyse geographic access, navigate a GIS map, use tools to access feature information and know what questions to ask when interpreting spatial analysis.
