Apply your GIS knowledge in this course on geospatial analysis, focusing on analysis tools, 3D data, working with rasters, projections, and environment variables. Through all four weeks of this course, we'll work through a project together - something unique to this course - from project conception, through data retrieval, initial data management and processing, and finally to our analysis products. In this class you will learn the fundamentals of geospatial and environmental analysis during four week-long modules: Week 1: Tour ArcToolbox and learn how to use common geospatial analysis tools built into ArcGIS Week 2: Gain a working understanding of raster data models: symbolize, reproject, overlay, and assess rasters. Take a detour into 3D data models, and interpolation of observations into 3D surfaces and rasters Week 3: Go in-depth on projections and coordinate systems, which are foundational to all GIS. Learn how to use environment variables to constrain your analyses and get better quality data products. Week 4: Expand your knowledge of symbology. Learn how to visually display your data by classifying it in logical groupings and then symbolizing it on your map. Take Geospatial and Environmental Analysis as a standalone course or as part of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization. You should have equivalent experience to completing the first and second courses in this specialization, "Fundamentals of GIS" and "GIS Data Formats, Design, and Quality", before taking this course. By completing this third class in the Specialization you will gain the skills needed to succeed in the full program....

Welcome to the last course of the specialization (unless your continuing on to the capstone project, of course!). Using the knowledge you’ve learned about ArcGIS, complete technical tasks such raster calculations and suitability analysis. In this class you will become comfortable with spatial analysis and applications within GIS during four week-long modules: Week 1: You'll learn all about remotely sensed and satellite imagery, and be introduced to the electromagnetic spectrum. At the end of this week, you'll be able to find and download satellite imagery online and use it for two common types of analysis: NDVI and trained classification. Week 2: You'll learn how to use ModelBuilder to create large processing workflows that use parameters, preconditions, variables, and a new set of tools. We'll also explore a few topics that we don't really have time to discuss in detail, but might whet your appetite for future learning in other avenues: geocoding, time-enabled data, spatial statistics, and ArcGIS Pro. Week 3: In week three, we'll make and use digital elevation models using some new, specific tools such as the cut fill tool, hillshades, viewsheds and more. We'll also go through a few common algorithms including a very important one: the suitability analysis. Week 4: We'll begin the final week by talking about a few spatial analyst tools we haven't yet touched on in the specialization: Region Group to make our own zones, Focal Statistics to smooth a hillshade, Reclassify to change values, and Point Density to create a density surface. Finally, we'll wrap up by talking about a few more things that you might want to explore more as you start working on learning about GIS topics on your own. Take Geospatial and Environmental Analysis as a standalone course or as part of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization. You should have equivalent experience to completing the first, second, and third courses in this specialization, "Fundamentals of GIS," "GIS Data Formats, Design, and Quality", and "Geospatial and Environmental Analysis," respectively, before taking this course. By completing the fourth class you will gain the skills needed to succeed in the Specialization capstone....

  • You will have your choice of several capstone project to demonstrate your mastery of the Specialization content. The project will highlight your skill in data analysis and display your results on a professional quality map. You will be able to share your project digitally or in print.

  • The Specialization uses ArcGIS for Desktop. Instructions will be provided inside the course to download a free educational license. Please check below to make sure your computer meets the requirements to run ArcGIS.

  • We use the Esri suite of products in this specialization because it is in the most demand across the broadest set of industries. We cover ArcGIS Desktop, specifically ArcMap and ArcCatalog, with an introduction to ArcGIS Online. Learners comfortable with computers will be able to take what is learned in these classes and apply it to other GIS systems, though they are not explicitly taught in this specialization.

  • ArcGIS requires a computer running Microsoft Windows, please visit Esri’s website to view the current system requirements for ArcGIS Desktop: http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/get-started/system-requirements/arcgis-desktop-system-requirements.html.

    If you would like to take the course using a Mac, it is possible, but you must feel comfortable setting up and installing Microsoft Windows on your Mac, either using virtualization software such as VirtualBox (free), BootCamp (free), Parallels, or VMWare. If you do not already have a Windows license, a free trial is available, but then you may be required to purchase a license in the future. A forum post in the first course includes tips from other students who have gone through the courses using a Mac to help you get set up. Still, getting the software set up on a Mac (or Linux) is ultimately up to you and not currently a supported configuration for this course. We hope to offer cross-platform training in the near future.

  • This specialization is for beginners, and assumes no pre-existing knowledge of GIS. Pre-existing knowledge in GIS will help you to absorb concepts more quickly, but is not required.

  • Students need to pay the specialization fee, verify their identity (requires a webcam and physical keyboard). To learn more about the verification process please visit: https://www.coursera.org/signature/. If you have issues with the verification process please visit the troubleshooting page: https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/201212579-Verification-Troubleshooting

  • All courses in the specialization, except the final capstone project, have sessions that begin weekly, so if you miss a session or fall behind, you can enroll when you're ready. Courses each take about 4 weeks to complete, depending on the pace you follow. The capstone project runs approximately every 8 weeks in order to ensure enough students are in the course to give feedback and grades. The capstone project also takes longer (recommended time is about 8 weeks).
