Course Overview

You have been asked to build a full-fledged operational GIS database – a daunting task indeed, but there are steps that you can take to assure success and this course will bring those steps to you. We discuss the best practices of building a GIS database: from strategic vision, to user needs analysis, to database design and pilot project, all the way to the database implementation itself. We are going to discuss such items as logical database modeling, cost/benefit analysis and risk analysis – all towards establishing a sound GIS database. We round out the course with a full discussion of project management: From initiating a project, to planning, to executing and monitoring a project, and finally to closing a project.
