Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Fundamentals for Utilities, April 6-7, 2020 in San Antonio, TX

Geographic information systems (GIS) is becoming a well-known technology that is used every day, not just by all types of organizations all over the world, but also by people. The web has changed GIS, making it everywhere and readily available 24/7/365. With the web and mobility advances, GIS has become more powerful and an indispensable tool for all types of users.

Real world use cases, as well as your specific needs, will be part of our interactive discussions. The course will focus on ESRI web and mobile applications such as Survey123, Collector, Explorer, Operations Dashboards, Insights, and 3D, as well as ArcGIS Portal and AGOL. You will learn tips and tricks from experience and successful projects.

The course is ideal for any professionals from any industry who are interested in all aspects of spatial data collection, data sharing, data management, and data analytics; from the new professional who would like to start learning about how to implement and use GIS in the field, to the expert who would like to take field GIS and data management to the next level, and even the professional that wants to refresh their knowledge.
