In this online two day course (taught over four mornings) you will learn what GIS is, how it works and how you can use it to create maps and perform spatial analysis. We assume no prior knowledge of GIS and you will learn how to get data into the GIS, how to produce maps using your own data and what you can and cannot do with spatial data. You will also learn how to work with a variety of different data sources and types (including XY coordinate data and address or postcode data) and using spatial overlays, point in polygon analysis and spatial joins.

This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to use spatial data in their role. This includes students, academic, government & other public sector researchers who have data with some spatial information (e.g. address, postcode, etc.) which they wish to show on a map.

No previous experience of spatial data is required.
