Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computer-based technologies to collect, integrate, analyze, query, model, and visualize geographic data. GIS is widely used to explore the relationships between where features are (location, size, and shape) and what they represent (descriptive information know as attribute data).

This online training offered by NM LTAP provides an introduction to the concepts, principles, and theories of GIS, with emphasis on tech nature of geographic information, data models, and structures for storing geographic information, geographic data editing and manipulation, and simple spatial analysis techniques. Upon completion, students will have the ability to identify geospatial products/applications, create and edit geospatial data, conduct basic GIS analyses, and understand tech differences between raster and vector data models.
