More Course Details

No longer just software used for mapping roads and land uses, geographic information systems (GIS) are now interactive and able to engage, collaborate, build consensus, and inform the public.

Emerging web-based technologies that incorporate GIS enable planners to improve collaboration and build consensus through interactive web-based applications. The goal of the course is to inform and educate planners about new GIS technologies that are available to them and to demonstrate the real-world applications.

Speakers present case studies to encourage and inspire planners to take advantage of GIS technology to enhance their projects, workflows, and reach. Learn the steps required to quickly develop applications.
