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.
