Geographic Information System (GIS) Fundamentals Certificate at University of Richmond

Wednesday, 10 April, 2019


Our GIS Fundamentals Certificate is designed for professionals who wish to add GIS to their skillset and gather a broad understanding of the technology. The program provides a solid background in the fundamentals of geography and extends beyond a particular software program's capability or features. 

This 15-week course will include many hands-on labs and will have an active classroom environment. Most instruction will take place in ArcGIS Pro, a new premier professional desktop GIS application that replaces the current standard, ArcMap.

  • Become familiar with the five parts of a GIS: hardware, software, data, people and methods.
  • Understand the basics of how to find, store, create, analyze and edit spatial data.
  • Discuss the importance of coordinate systems and projections in GIS.
  • Learn basic principles and applications of spatial analysis.
