In an era driven by data and technology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have emerged as an indispensable tool for understanding the world around us. GeoHub project is thrilled to offer this semester two OSUN courses on GIS that will enable students to harness the full potential of spatial data visualization and analysis. These courses will empower you with the knowledge and skills to navigate the world of geospatial data, making you a valuable asset in today's data-driven society. Join us on a journey to explore the world through the lens of GIS.
Why GIS matters:
GIS technology allows us to visualize, analyze, and interpret complex data sets within a geographic context. From urban planning and environmental management to disaster response and business analytics, GIS plays a pivotal role in numerous industries. As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, the ability to work with spatial data is becoming a highly desirable skill in the job market. Moreover, GIS helps us address critical global challenges, such as climate change, rapid urbanization, natural resource management, and public health crises, making it a vital tool for creating a sustainable and equitable future.
Course 1: Mapping the World with QGIS (OSUN Online Course – Fall 2023)
- Our online OSUN-wide course provides a comprehensive introduction to the powerful open-source QGIS software. You will learn to create, analyze, and visualize geographic data, as well as produce high-quality maps. Whether you're a novice or have some GIS experience, this course is designed to accommodate learners of all levels.
Course 2: Introduction to Geospatial Data Visualization (OSUN Network Collaborative Course – Fall 2023)
- For those seeking hands-on experience, our OSUN Collaborative course is the perfect opportunity, being offered at Central European University (CEU) and American University of Central Asia (AUCA) Campuses. Dive into the world of spatial analysis, data visualization, and storytelling through maps. Exploring both desktop and online mapping solutions (including Google Earth Pro, Google Maps, and QGIS), this course will equip you with the tools needed to communicate data effectively in a visual and impactful way.
Don't miss this opportunity to embark on a transformative GIS journey. Whether you're a total beginner looking to learn a new skill or a more experienced user seeking to improve your knowledge, these courses will provide you with the expertise needed to make a meaningful impact in your field.
