July 13th, 2017 by Susan Smith
The face of GIS and Geospatial education has changed dramatically over the past few years, with new online courses being offered in numerous subjects, ranging from GIS fundamentals to Spatial Analytics and UAVs. What is more phenomenal is that these courses reach out to all corners of the earth, making a GIS/geospatial education a possibility for almost everyone on the planet.
Our coverage will include a listing of all the top online GIS courses offered today, enrollment information and costs, as well as comments from instructors, employers and current or graduated students from some of the programs.
Instructors and students of online GIS courses are welcome to weigh in on their thoughts and experiences about online courses they are currently enrolled in or have completed. Employers are also encouraged to comment on the value of online GIS courses to their professional staff.
