I am (very) new to GIS. I am looking to obtain a position as a Wildlife Biologist and to help me do that I am considering taking an online course. My hope is the GIS degree or certificate will make me more competitive.
I have a BS in Fish and Wildlife Management from Montana State and I am currently working full-time for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in hatcheries. Any tips or info on GIS usefullness in biology/research applications? Or tips on online programs that would be good for said careers?
