What is this course about?
A fundamental use of geography is to help you interpret your world. Geography determines where you shop, where children attend school, what sports are popular, and what clothes that you wear.
In this course, you will learn how geography is combined with data to create a GIS. A GIS can help you make predictions and informed decisions. You will learn about different GIS data types, how geographic data is collected and managed, how to create maps and share them, and how to use analysis to answer geographic questions.
This course is designed for anyone who needs to publish GIS resources and share content via ArcGIS Online / Portal for ArcGIS. GIS analysts, specialists, data managers and other knowledge workers will benefit.
