The GICHD is happy to announce that it will be holding an e-learning course on “Introduction to GIS for Mine Action” and on “Introduction to ArcGIS Enterprise”, which is supported by the Swiss Government.
Introduction to GIS for Mine Action:
Mine action is inherently geographic, and GIS allows information managers to visualise and analyse data to help solve spatial problems and make smarter decisions. In this course, learn the fundamental components and capabilities of GIS and discover how ArcGIS can improve the quality of the information in mine action workflows.
Introduction to ArcGIS Enterprise:
Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA) Core builds on ArcGIS Enterprise software to support mine action workflows. This course introduces key concepts of ArcGIS Enterprise to users of IMSMA Core. Understanding these foundational concepts will help users of IMSMA Core perform their work more effectively.
Module 1: Introduction to GIS for Mine action
Module 2: Introduction to ArcGIS Enterprise
Duration: The 1st module will take 3h30 and the 2nd module will take 5h30.
It is an e-learning online training module that participants can follow at their own pace. Each participant will have 3 weeks to complete both modules and will get awarded a certificate if a score of at least 75% on the final test is achieved.
