Organizer: DATA-AFRIQUE CONSULTANCY (www.data-afriqueconsultancy.org)

Course fee: USD 2,000

INTRODUCTION

This training introduces students to both the social and technical aspects of digital mapping. Students will learn fundamental concepts and techniques in cartography and GIS, including file types, data classification, projections and coordinate systems and elementary analytical techniques in a range of desktop and web-based mapping platforms. In addition to providing the fundamental technical competencies necessary to create maps, students will develop the critical awareness required to effectively communicate complex social processes through maps. This course comprises 10 modules, each with their own learning objectives and target deliverable. Modules consist of an applied "hands-on" lesson.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:

Define and differentiate between variety of spatial data models and formats

Explain and apply the basics of representation in GIS, (including using vector and raster data formats, determining appropriate geographic coordinate system for a given spatial data file and applying the appropriate geographic projection to a map type and spatial scale)

Manipulate geospatial datasets (e.g. cleaning, joining, querying, extracting)

Apply appropriate thematic map symbology to represent geographic phenomena

Produce static map products that integrate multiple data types and analytical methods

Obtain geospatial data from a variety of online sources and integrate into mapping processes

Integrate desktop GIS procedures with web-based mapping platforms

DURATION

2 Weeks

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course targets government representatives, project teams, NGOs, multi and bilateral development organizations, consultancies, etc, who work as M&E specialists, project managers, researchers and technical specialists.
