      GIS And Remote Sensing Analysis Mapping And Visualization With Quantum GIS

      FineResults Research Services invites you to a training on:
      Topic: GIS And Remote Sensing Analysis Mapping And Visualization With Quantum GIS
      Date: 5th to 9th October 2020
      Cost: USD 800 or Ksh. 65,000
      Contacts: +254 759 285 295 or training@fineresultsresearch.org.

      With information society, creation, distribution, integration and manipulation of information has become a significant economic, political, and cultural activity. It’s a known fact that information is processed from facts and figures; we also agree that if data is not well managed it can be overwhelming. Giving a spatial dimension to data and performing spatial analysis in a GIS environment speeds interpretation visualization which eventually speeds up implementation of programs. To make timely decisions requires  not only  innovative ways to access accurate and real time information, but also tools to help present the information in ways that are useful .Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing as a decision making tool  has seen many organizations  gain competitive advantage and remain relevant globally. Everything that happens in this world has a spatial dimension and this has made GIS applicable across all fields e.g. in health, agriculture, forestry, mining, crime, business, transport and communications, utility management, climate change, planning etc. A geographic information system (GIS) will allow you to bring all types of data inform of layers, overlay them to perform analysis and eventually publish a map from that. This training workshop is aimed at helping our client understand how well they can apply GIS and RS in their day to day running of their organization. The course will be offered in a mixture of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises in Quantum GIS (QGIS).
