Geographical Information Systems and Environmental Management

The course provides training in geographical information systems (GIS) and in particular their application to a variety of environmental settings; it is ideally suited to GIS analysts, decision-makers and managers since it will provide hands-on experience of how to use a variety of GIS systems (ArcViewTM, ARCGISTM, MapInfoTM) in a real-world setting; participants are also able to select more specialist training relevant to their interests and expertise; the course aims to enhance participants' previous understanding and use of geographical information systems but it is also suitable for those who have no previous training in GIS; by the end of the course participants will have developed high level abilities to apply GIS within environmental management, have an in-depth understanding of the functionality of GIS and be critically aware of the potential and limitations of GIS.
