Acerca de Programa especializado: Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an increasingly sought after skill in industries from agriculture to public health. This Specialization, offered in partnership with ArcGIS developer Esri, will teach the skills you need to successfully use GIS software in a professional setting. You will learn how to analyze your spatial data, use cartography techniques to communicate your results in maps, and collaborate with peers in GIS and GIS-dependent fields. In the final Capstone Project, you will create a professional-quality GIS portfolio piece using a combination of data identification and collection, analytical map development, and spatial analysis techniques. Interested in learning advanced GIS topics? Check out the Spatial Data Analysis and Visualization MasterTrack™ Program....

Preguntas Frecuentes

  • Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:

    • The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.

    • The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.

  • When you enroll in the course, you get access to all of the courses in the Specialization, and you earn a certificate when you complete the work. Your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • If you subscribed, you get a 7-day free trial during which you can cancel at no penalty. After that, we don’t give refunds, but you can cancel your subscription at any time. See our full refund policy.

  • Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You'll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. You'll need to complete this step for each course in the Specialization, including the Capstone Project. Learn more.

  • This course and the next course in the specialization have sessions that begin weekly, so if you miss a session or fall behind, you can enroll when you're ready. Courses each take about 4 weeks to complete, depending on the pace you follow. Later courses run slightly less frequently, from every 2 weeks to every month based on enrollment. The capstone project runs approximately every 8 weeks in order to ensure enough students are in the course to give feedback and grades. The capstone project also takes longer (recommended time is about 8 weeks).

  • This course currently uses ArcMap and requires a computer running Windows. A license for ArcGIS is provided in the course. Learners on Mac or Unix systems can still participate, but must set up Windows somewhere, such as in BootCamp, Parallels, or another virtual machine, in order to install ArcGIS.

    In the near-future we will be transitioning the course to teach ArcGIS Pro and QGIS together, so you'd be able to use whicher works on your system and based on what you wish to learn.
