This free course uses interactive tools to present information about Geographic Information Systems (GIS) concepts, tools, and functionality in a conservation context. Within this course you will learn to define GIS and the major advantages of using GIS (including dynamic maps and feature to attribute relationships).

Additionally, the course provides you an opportunity to evaluate and work with GIS data in a practical context, as well as solve fairly simple but interesting conservation analytical problems. By completing this course, students gain an awareness of project flow, exposure to important GIS functional areas, and a solid foundation of GIS knowledge and skills.

The course consists of 9 modules that can be completed at your own pace. Completing the entire course will take approximately 12 hours.
