Maps and the Geospatial Revolution: MOOC Starts 25th March, 2015



Geospatial technologies have revolutionized the way we look at and approach problems. “Spatial Thinking” has become a skill that’s now slowly gaining importance. Wouldn’t it be great to talk about the awesomeness of Geo in a course! Luckily for us geogeeks, the course titled “Maps and the Geospatial Revolution” by Dr. Anthony C. Robinson comes in handy.

This course brings together core concepts in cartography, geographic information systems, and spatial thinking with real-world examples to provide the fundamentals necessary to engage with Geography beyond the surface-level. We will explore what makes spatial information special, how spatial data is created, how spatial analysis is conducted, and how to design maps so that they’re effective at telling the stories we wish to share. To gain experience using this knowledge, we will work with the latest mapping and analysis software to explore geographic problems. – Maps and the Geospatial Revolution


All of us are big-time geospatial enthusiasts and I know we can go on raving about the power of the location, hopefully the courses will help many more to understand the power of the map and the importance of spatial thinking.

Maps and the Geospatial Revolution starts – 25th March, 2015.


See you folks at Coursera! Here’s the link to the course: Maps and the Geospatial Revolution

I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
  • I have seen all the videos related to the Geospatial Revolution and is impressed. I have been blown away myself and believe this public relation initiative and campaign will get nothing less than positive responses. And now with this MOOC initiated by Penn State University, persons will get a better understanding of the uses and benefits of geospatial technology and will possibly apply it not only to their jobs but also their daily lives.

    Good going team Geospatial Revolution and Penn State University! I am so proud, being that I am a young GIS professional who is currently advocating for more GIS marketing to people who don’t know how powerful and how helpful this technology can be!
