The course is designed to provide GIS professionals with practical training in handling coordinate systems (map projections and datums) within industry standard GIS packages. The course places less emphasis on the mathematical theory of map projections and more on what the GIS professional needs to know in order to handle projections on a day-to-day basis and to be confident that the projection and parameters used are correct.

The course is focussed on practicalities such as knowing when a dataset is correctly projected or which projection to choose in a given situation. Combining a series of short lectures supported by practical exercises within the GIS, the exercises themselves are drawn from Frequently Asked Questions to GeoData’s GIS support line and from other WWW GIS support databases. This ensures that the course covers the most common difficulties faced by GIS professionals when data need to be projected or transformed.

This course is offered for MapInfo and ArcGIS.
