U.S.A. and it’s territories – Explained

United States of America (U.S.A.), is now one of the most-desirable destinations for the people who look forward to excel in educational, professional and in various other aspects which is also best-known for Inventiveness & Innovations, Freedom of Speech, cultural diversity, Grassroots activism, Sports ect.

As most of us know USA, which was named after Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian explorer, consisting of 50 states and a federal district (Washington, D.C.). In addition to the 50 states and federal district, the United States has control over 14 various territories.

Probably, each and every one might have seen map of administrative boundaries of United States of America and might have tried understanding the continental relationships among the states and territories and which part falls under rule of America ect, which is bit complex in nature.

But CGP Grey explains the complicated relationship between the United States of America’s administrative parts in this video in a bit easy way.

 

Thank you CGP Grey for your work!!! Let’s celebrate the Independence Day of USA on 4th July !!!

ESRI’s new GIS MOOC: Going Places with Spatial Analysis

ESRI_GISMOOCESRI is widely regarded as a GIS powerhouse and is certainly one of the most visible companies in the industry. Recently, ESRI’s founder Jack Dangermond pledged over $1 Billion in mapping software to schools across USA (read more here). A move that will make kids learn about spatial analysis and GIS whilst at the same time promoting ESRI products and it looks like ESRI has taken it’s commitment to spatial education one step further, announcing a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on spatial analysis titled “Going Places with Spatial Analysis”.

The course schedule has not been announced yet but the course is scheduled to be for 6 weeks and you get free access to ArcGIS Online, ESRI’s cloud GIS service.

  • Hands-on exercises, short video lectures, quizzes, case studies and discussion
  • 6 weeks, 2-3 hours of study per week
  • Certificate of completion and prizes
  • Next start date announced soon

This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is for people who know something about data analysis and want to learn about the special capabilities of spatial data analysis. Spatial analysis focuses on location to gain a deeper understanding of data. Spatial analysis skills are in high demand by organizations around the world. You’ll get free access to the full analytical capabilities of ArcGIS Online, Esri’s cloud-based GIS platform. Previous experience with GIS software is helpful, but not necessary for tech-savvy problem solvers. Could you and your career go places with spatial analysis? – ESRI Web Page

How detailed would the course be? Guessing by the previous GIS MOOC  by Penn State University “Maps and the Geospatial Revolution”, I wouldn’t be really upbeat about the MOOC especially if you are already a GIS geek 😉 But this is probably a good opportunity for you to experience ArcGIS Online and then compare your experience with Open Source and other WebGIS solutions. Nevertheless, the best part about GIS MOOCs is that now I can forward videos to explain GIS to interested people instead of using GIS jargons 🙂

You can sign up for the “Going Places with Spatial Analysis” here. See at the virtual class then 🙂

The location is anything is becoming everything!
