GIS Training Course – Surveying (3-D)

GIS Training Course – Surveying (3-D)

This GIS training course has been developed to provide a general overview of basic land surveying and measurement techniques using manual and electronic equipment. Learn how to transfer field data to digital terrain modelling software and to produce 2 or 3 dimension survey output files for computer aided design (CAD).

GIS Training Course Aims:

The aim of this 3-day GIS course is to provide participants with a solid foundation and advanced skills in geospatial techniques, empowering them to proficiently utilise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for data analysis, visualisation, and decision-making. Through a combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical exercises candidate will learn this specialist skills.
