GIS ESSENTIALS – “Getting spatially enabled”
This GIS course enables participants to identify potentials of spatial data and to put them to use.
Theoretical essentials in geoinformatics form the foundation, in order to gain a broad understanding of the subject matter. The second part brings import, visualisation and analysis of geodata, using OpenSource-tools, into focus. The used data will primarily come from OpenStreetMap.
