Website/register: Fundamentals of GIS for Conservation

Description: A geographic information system (GIS) is a very important mapping, data management, and analysis tool. A GIS is particularly important in conservation, as it helps us to answer the important questions and meet the many challenges facing our planet and world. The Nature Conservancy and our partners are aware of the importance of using GIS in conservation projects, and therefore have created this curriculum to spread GIS knowledge worldwide.

The Fundamentals of GIS for Conservation is comprised of six self-paced courses focusing on the fundamentals of GIS for conservation. Each course has several learning components, ranging from podcasts to web-based trainings, to help students gain knowledge on a specific topic. At the end of each course please take the course survey, and with a successful completion you will receive a course certificate. Note: Courses will highlight both ArcGIS 10.1 and ArcGIS 9.3.
