MST 101: Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing

Course Details

the course objective is to enable participants to master the basic concepts of GIS, as well as
the methods of acquiring, preparing and editing geospatial data. It will also allow participants to
become familiar with geospatial data mining and analysis techniques, as well as the use of the
QGIS/ArcGIS geographic information system. This training will also allow the acquisition of
advanced notions in the fields of remote sensing, image processing and analysis, from
visualization and classification operations to the analysis of results.
