Get started learning about the fascinating and useful world of geographic information systems (GIS)! In this first course of the specialization GIS, Mapping, and Spatial Analysis, you'll learn about what a GIS is, how to get started with the software yourself, how things we find in the real world can be represented on a map, how we record locations using coordinates, and how we can make a two-dimensional map from a three-dimensional Earth. In the course project, you will create your own GIS data by tracing geographic features from a satellite image for a location and theme of your choice. This course will give you a strong foundation in mapping and GIS that will give you the understanding you need to start working with GIS, and to succeed in the other courses in this specialization.

The most recommended course on GIS! The material is very easy to understand, but it becomes the basic foundation for further learning GIS. Happy learning and discover the fun for yourself!
Very enjoyable and well thought out. The instructor is great and makes the course material very easy to understand and to follow along. I am looking forward to the remaining courses in the field.
