We love sharing educational resources and anything else that helps students and professionals alike to advance their skills and knowledge to be applied to cool GIS and GeoTech. A shout-out here to our friends at the University of Kentucky who are promoting some fine GIS and GeoTech EDU offerings.
More about the program:
The online Graduate Certificate in Digital Mapping is based on a three-course sequence:
- MAP 671 Intro to New Mapping – focuses on an open source desktop GIS workflow for web production
- MAP 672 Programming for Web Mapping – introduces students to the fundamental concepts and techniques of web development and computer programming through web mapping
- MAP 673 Design for Interactive Web Mapping – integrates the principles of geographic representation and web programming in order for students to develop high-quality interactive web maps.
Students with sufficient experience may choose to complete the graduate certificate with MAP 672, MAP 673 and a more advanced class in web mapping (MAP 675, Collaborative Geovisualization). All courses are completely online and run for 10-week terms with the next start date on April 9th.
Admissions require a bachelor’s degree but no prior GIS or mapping experience is necessary. Deadline to apply for the Spring program is March 25, 2018.
Note: not only is the U of Kentucky a great educational resource for GIS professionals looking to get a leg up on jump-starting a career, the University is also a perfect user community to take advantage of Admin Tools (Pro) to help manage their ArcGIS Admin needs for students and faculties using their GIS facilities.
