About

Knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an increasingly sought after skill in industries from agriculture to public health. 

This Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offered by Coursera in partnership with UC Davis, offered in partnership with ArcGIS developer Esri, will teach the skills you need to successfully use GIS software in a professional setting. 

You will learn how to analyze your spatial data, use cartography techniques to communicate your results in maps, and collaborate with peers in GIS and GIS-dependent fields. In the final Capstone Project, you will create a professional-quality GIS portfolio piece using a combination of data identification and collection, analytical map development, and spatial analysis techniques.
