Summer Course - Introduction to GIS, Cornell University

The Department of City and Regional Planning at Cornell University is offering Introduction to GIS (CRP 4080) this summer on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30-9:00p with David West. The course is designed to give students the basic technical skills required to acquire, create, edit, and map data, and perform basic spatial analysis as well as the theoretical background necessary for critical analysis of maps and GIS processes. This summer's course will use Q-GIS, the leading free and open source GIS program to enable students to provide GIS capabilities to non-profits, small municipalities, community advocates and other resource constrained constituents who may be unable to afford an ESRI ArcGIS license. The course is hands on and utilizes a "flipped classroom" methodology where students learn basic concepts before class through readings and videos, test their knowledge at the beginning of class with computerized quizzes and then work through discussion, hands on lab activities, and engage lecturing during class time.

Enroll before 06 May to save $100 – after 06 May there is a $100 registration fee. For more details, please visit the web site
