Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are systems for storing, managing and analysing spatial data. This course is designed to introduce you to GIS and spatial data and enable you to display, manipulate and interrogate spatial data. You will learn about different types of spatial data, how to create simple maps, how to create and edit spatial data and how to carry out some simple analytical task.
