IIHS, is pleased to announce a short course on “Working with Digital Maps–Leveraging the Power of GIS”

The Short Course is a unique and intense 3-day programme for working professionals from diverse backgrounds working on different aspects of human settlements. The course aims to equip the learners with essentials of mapping, offering insights and hands-on exposure to working with various free-and-open-source mapping applications. The Short Course will equip learners to appreciate the nuances of key concepts, enabling them to quickly learn, test and apply the techniques in their respective domains and eventually be able to produce maps for their own needs.

This will also expose learners to use/develop mash-ups based on popular web-based GIS applications like OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, etc. and open up learners to use volunteered geographic information and crowd-sourced knowledge in their respective use cases.
