Cómo funciona Programa Especializado

Toma cursos

Un programa especializado de Coursera es un conjunto de cursos que te ayudan a dominar una aptitud. Para comenzar, inscríbete en el programa especializado directamente o échale un vistazo a sus cursos y elige uno con el que te gustaría comenzar. Al suscribirte a un curso que forme parte de un programa especializado, quedarás suscrito de manera automática al programa especializado completo. Puedes completar solo un curso: puedes pausar tu aprendizaje o cancelar tu suscripción en cualquier momento. Visita el panel principal del estudiante para realizar un seguimiento de tus inscripciones a cursos y tu progreso.

Proyecto práctico

Cada programa especializado incluye un proyecto práctico. Necesitarás completar correctamente el proyecto para completar el programa especializado y obtener tu certificado. Si el programa especializado incluye un curso separado para el proyecto práctico, necesitarás completar cada uno de los otros cursos antes de poder comenzarlo.

Obtén un certificado

Cuando completes todos los cursos y el proyecto práctico, obtendrás un Certificado que puedes compartir con posibles empleadores y tu red profesional.

Hay 4 cursos en este Programa Especializado

Curso1

Introduction to GIS Mapping

Get started learning about the fascinating and useful world of geographic information systems (GIS)! In this first course of the specialization GIS, Mapping, and Spatial Analysis, you'll learn about what a GIS is, how to get started with the software yourself, how things we find in the real world can be represented on a map, how we record locations using coordinates, and how we can make a two-dimensional map from a three-dimensional Earth. In the course project, you will create your own GIS data by tracing geographic features from a satellite image for a location and theme of your choice. This course will give you a strong foundation in mapping and GIS that will give you the understanding you need to start working with GIS, and to succeed in the other courses in this specialization. This course is for anyone who wants to learn about mapping and GIS. You don't have to have any previous experience - just your curiosity! The course includes both practical software training and explanations of the concepts you need to know to make informed decisions as you start your journey to becoming a GIS analyst. You will need a Windows computer with ArcGIS Desktop installed....
Curso2

GIS Data Acquisition and Map Design

In this course, you will learn how to find GIS data for your own projects, and how to create a well-designed map that effectively communicates your message. The first section focuses on the basic building blocks of GIS data, so that you know what types of GIS files exist, and the implications of choosing one type over another. Next, we'll discuss metadata (which is information about a data set) so you know how to evaluate a data set before you decide to use it, as well as preparing data by merging and clipping files as needed. We'll then talk about how to take non-GIS data, such as a list of addresses, and convert it into "mappable" data using geocoding. Finally, you'll learn about how to take data that you have found and design a map using cartographic principles. In the course project, you will find your own data and create your own quantitative map....
Curso3

Spatial Analysis and Satellite Imagery in a GIS

In this course, you will learn how to analyze map data using different data types and methods to answer geographic questions. First, you will learn how to filter a data set using different types of queries to find just the data you need to answer a particular question. Then, we will discuss simple yet powerful analysis methods that use vector data to find spatial relationships within and between data sets. In this section, you will also learn about how to use ModelBuilder, a simple but powerful tool for building analysis flowcharts that can then also be run as models. You will then learn how to find, understand, and use remotely sensed data such as satellite imagery, as a rich source of GIS data. You will then learn how to analyze raster data. Finally, you will complete your own project where you get to try out the new skills and tools you have learned about in this course....
Curso4

GIS, Mapping, and Spatial Analysis Capstone

In this capstone course, you will apply everything you have learned by designing and then completing your own GIS project. You will plan out your project by writing a brief proposal that explains what you plan to do and why. You will then find data for a topic and location of your choice, and perform analysis and create maps that allow you to try out different tools and data sets. The results of your work will be assembled into an Esri story map, which is a web site with maps, images, text, and video. The goal is for you to have a finished product that you can share, and that demonstrates what you have learned....
