Description: GIS allows people to visualize and analyze data to help solve spatial problems and make smarter decisions. In this course, the student will learn the fundamental components and capabilities of GIS technology using ESRI’s ArcGIS software suite to learn and discover how GIS can help organizations address public safety. ArcGIS securely integrates data in order to visualize and analyze it to uncover hidden vulnerabilities and patterns that help prioritize efforts that can increase the safety and security of the community. Students will learn skills to make and analyze maps and will develop a solid base upon which to build further expertise in GIS.
