Description Course Outline Exam Details

Location Intelligence has been important for human endeavors for centuries. With modern advances in Information Technology, Location Intelligence can be achieved by commercial businesses with the use of Geographic Information Systems. A Geographic Information System (or GIS) is a relational database technology that enables both analysis and visualization of geographic, demographic, and other types of geospatial data. The technology was first introduced in the 1970s and has evolved to provide scientists, engineers, and business analysts with a means by which to analyze their data through a customizable map and graphical user interface.

While all levels of government, military, engineering & scientific consultants, and academic organizations have been successfully using GIS for a variety of applications, commercial businesses have been slow to adopt the technology in order to provide better Location Intelligence for their Business Intelligence operations.

This online training course provides an overview of GIS software with the goal of demonstrating how to use the technology to build Location Intelligence.

I really enjoyed the way the course was delivered. it was in digestible sections and lot of examples were shared. I do believe it should be used as a template for every course provided on e-learning platform (I really wish that was the case).
