GIS MAPPING AND SPATIAL DATA ANALYSIS

Course fee: KSH 80,000, USD 1,000 Start Date: 05/10/2020 End Date: 09/10/2020

TRAINING ON GIS MAPPING AND SPATIAL DATA ANALYSIS

INTRODUCTION

The ability of GIS to store, retrieve, analyze model and map spatial data has enhanced its application. Geographic information systems are used in infrastructure management, project beneficiary mapping, service facilities mapping, land use planning, market analysis, impact analysis and utilities management.
