Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can play a key role in helping scientists, decision-makers, and the public develop collaborative solutions to real-world problems. GIS mapping tools have become imperative for many fields, such as epidemiology, veterinary science, urban planning and environmental assessment. The Applied Geographical Information Systems short course is an introduction to a range of geospatial techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. Practical case studies are employed to help you confront real world problems and design a solution using GIS.
