The world has gone digital, are you ready? Get practical hands-on GIS and ARCGIS training for the future at Abuja Computer Training School

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data.

GIS connects data to a map, integrating location data (where things are) with all types of descriptive information (what things are like there). This provides a foundation for mapping and analysis that is used in science and almost every industry.

 GIS helps users understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision making.

Students will learn the basics of GIS technology and its application in different industries; Understand common workflows in GIS, Common GIS components; Learn about the different GIS applications.

Customization of Maps using, Google Maps and Google Earth Pro and ArcGIS Online. How to create, edit, import and export map components.

Benefits of taking GIS and ArcGIS Training

  1. Cost savings resulting from greater efficiency – These are associated either with carrying out the mission (i.e., labor savings from automating or improving a workflow) or improvements in the mission itself. 
  • Better decision making. This typically has to do with making better decisions about location.  Common examples include real estate site selection, route/corridor selection, zoning, planning, conservation, natural resource extraction, etc
  • Improved communication. GIS-based maps and visualizations greatly assist in understanding situations and story-telling.  They are a new language that improves communication between different teams, departments, disciplines, professional fields, organizations, and the public.
  • Better geographic information recordkeeping. Many organizations have a primary responsibility of maintaining authoritative records about the status and change of geography (geographic accounting). 

Cultural geography examples are zoning, population census, land ownership, and administrative boundaries.

Who uses GIS?

GIS software is being used widely in almost all fields. GIS software are used by individual, people, communities, research institutions, environmental scientists, health organizations, land use planners, businesses, and government agencies at all levels.

Urban Planning, Management & Policy

Oil and Gas companies

Oil and gas data is strongly connected to geography. For example, oil exploration, pipeline construction and the environment use GIS. All of these features are spatial in nature.

Uses range from information storage; spatial pattern identification; visual presentation of spatial relationships; remote sensing – all sometimes made available through internet web interfaces, involving large numbers of users, data collectors, specialists and/or community participants.

Many government agencies use GIS software to help in planning and organizing their geographic data.

Many police departments, fire departments and other emergency services have begun to use GIS to help in their daily operations.

GIS software can help officials track crime, find the shortest route to emergencies and more.
