In this course, you will learn how to find GIS data for your own projects, and how to create a well-designed map that effectively communicates your message. The first section focuses on the basic building blocks of GIS data, so that you know what types of GIS files exist, and the implications of choosing one type over another. Next, we'll discuss metadata (which is information about a data set) so you know how to evaluate a data set before you decide to use it, as well as preparing data by merging and clipping files as needed. We'll then talk about how to take non-GIS data, such as a list of addresses, and convert it into "mappable" data using geocoding. Finally, you'll learn about how to take data that you have found and design a map using cartographic principles. In the course project, you will find your own data and create your own quantitative map.

This course is very well-structured and offers information, in a comprehensible format. I really feel like I learned a lot and gained more insight in the mapping area.
Course was very informative and was very exciting in leaning the course throughout. And Don Boyes was a great facilitator
Really enjoyed the Course. I learned to create standardized maps, how to fetch data and to edit them as per standard methods.
I learned a lot about arcGIS, and I was able to successfully make a useful map after completing this course.
