Geographic Information System (GIS) Course


GIS is operation concerned with large-scale maps and depend on large financial resources, which are produced by governments, administrative departments and municipalities, as the main objective of them is to support politicians and administrators to make balanced decisions regarding natural and human resources. It can also be used in scientific research and development plans.
Technically, it is defined as a computer system for collecting, managing, processing and analyzing information of a spatial nature that describes geographical features on the surface of the earth, whether these features are natural such as forests and rivers, or artificial such as buildings, roads, bridges, dams, or even natural and environmental phenomena such as tides, pollution, desertification and others.
The use of GIS is not limited to large areas, because it can be used in the study of a neighborhood in which the geographical features consist of a small number of houses and the telephone, electricity and water networks, or in one company where the computer network is one of its features.
