Learning GIS


If you’re interested in learning about GIS, I have created web pages for each main topic I teach in my introductory GIS course (GGR272).  These pages include lecture podcasts and software demonstrations and lists of online readings and other resources.  The material was specifically developed for my own students, but you might find it helpful.  The topics are listed in the order I normally teach them.

What is a GIS?
Introduction to ArcGIS
Map design
Earth and its coordinate system
