Introduction to Field Data Collection
Empowering the Everday Workflow With Online GIS

Information:

GIS Cloud is a collaborative mapping platform for field data collection, team management and map sharing in real-time. In our introductory course, we’ll cover the fundamentals of GIS Cloud apps and platforms. You’ll learn how to transform your project workflow from paper to digital and get insight into a complete solution for field data collection, visualization, and collaboration.

No need to be a GIS expert – learn how to prepare powerful surveys, collect data in the field, share it with colleagues, and leverage real-time information that will impact your community growth and help you make decisions faster. The intention is to introduce the diversity of GIS Cloud apps and empower you to use online GIS in your everyday workflow. We’d like to support your projects as well, so get involved in our Q&A afterward, and find out how to submit your proposals for GIS Cloud sponsorship.
