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.

  • We use the Esri suite of products in this specialization because it is in the most demand across the broadest set of industries. We cover ArcGIS Desktop, specifically ArcMap and ArcCatalog, with an introduction to ArcGIS Online. Learners comfortable with computers will be able to take what is learned in these classes and apply it to other GIS systems, though they are not explicitly taught in this specialization.

    If you would like to take the course using a Mac, it is possible, but you must feel comfortable setting up and installing Microsoft Windows on your Mac, either using virtualization software such as VirtualBox (free), BootCamp (free), Parallels, or VMWare. If you do not already have a Windows license, a free trial is available, but then you may be required to purchase a license in the future. A forum post in the first course includes tips from other students who have gone through the courses using a Mac to help you get set up. Still, getting the software set up on a Mac (or Linux) is ultimately up to you and not currently a supported configuration for this course. We hope to offer cross-platform training in the near future.
