We are offering a FREE Geospatial Training Course.

The main objective of this course is to provide the basic knowledge in GIS and Remote Sensing theory and application using the teaching tools developed by Environmental Cooperative Science Center (ECSC) at Florida A&M University. These training course modules are specifically developed to provide step by step hands on experience with GIS and Remote Sensing tools like ArcGIS 9.2 and ENVI so that students can use this technology in their current and future research projects.

To enroll in the course please contact Michelle S. Williams.
