Principles and Applications of Integrating GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing<|
ATI's GIS, GPS, and Remote Sensing (Geomatics) course
This four-day course will provide a
technical overview of the current state of
Geographic Information Systems and the
integration of this powerful tool with GPS,
remote sensing, and other data. This course is
designed for those currently using GIS, those
who are considering purchasing GIS systems,
and managers who wish to better understand
the issues involved in properly utilizing these
The course provides an overview of the
origins, current status, and future directions
and applications of Geomatics tools.
Information on GIS resources and making
these tools work well in your own
organization are highlighted.
What You Will Learn:
- What is GIS, and how does it work?
- What is the current status of these tools?
- What are the areas of future growth and new commercial markets for Geomatics?
- How are GIS/GPS/remote sensing and other tools functionally integrated?
- How can I successfully harness these tools and avoid problems?
From this course you will obtain a
good overview of the origins, current
status and future directions of GIS
and how the functional integration
with remote sensing, GPS and other
tools will develop new commercial
markets and applications.e first time.
