Geomatics – GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing Training Course – Hands-on
Geomatics – GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing Training will provide a technical overview of the current state of Geographic Information Systems and the integration of this powerful tool with GPS, remote sensing, and other data. This course is designed for those currently using GIS, those who are considering purchasing GIS systems, and managers who wish to better understand the issues involved in properly utilizing these tools.
The course provides an overview of the origins, current status, and future directions and applications of Geomatics tools. Information on GIS resources and making these tools work well in your own organization are highlighted.
Geomatics – GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing Training Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
