The course contents are up to date and equip the learner to face the real world of Remote sensing and GIS. I encourage those who still hesitate to get enrolled to make their decision soon.....
Spectacular. I am using these skills for risk assessment and I have become far more efficient and confident in my spatial analysis abilities.
What prior experience do I need to take this course?
You should have some experience in GIS before taking this course - it's not for beginners. This is the fourth course in the Geographic Information Systems specialization, and you should have taken the first three courses in the specialization, "Fundamentals of GIS", "GIS Data Formats, Design, and Quality", and "Geospatial and Environmental Analysis" here on Coursera before enrolling in this course, or have equivalent experience. If you're not sure if you have equivalent experience, you can audit those courses for free to look through the materials and fill in any gaps. Search for them by name on the site to find them.
Since all of the courses in the specialization run monthly, you won't miss out on this course by enrolling in those courses first. This course will have a new session once you have the skills needed to take it.
