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.
