Working with GIS @iHub Research


by James Ndiga

iHub Research invites interested participants to a one-day workshop on “Working with GIS”.

There are limited spaces so sign up early. Register here to attend!

Date: Tuesday, 13th August 2013           Time: 0930-1700Hours

Venue: iHub Research

Maps are a powerful tool to visualize information and make spatial linkages obvious. Using data in a geospatial environment is an added value when working with communities or stakeholders to make important aspects more visible, whether socio-economic or biophysical.
The GIS-course will teach basic knowledge on how to visualize your data and how to conduct basic geospatial analysis. You will learn how to make a map and how to use your data in it to simply visualize complex problems.

Topics that will be covered during the workshop

  • What is a GIS?
  • What are typical Geo-functions?
  • With what data does a GIS work?
  • Get your data in a GIS
  • Modifying your data
  • Creating new spatial data
  • How to make a map?

The course will be held by Valerie Graw, PhD Researcher at the Center for Development Research (ZEF), University of Bonn. Valerie’s PhD study is on linkages of socio-economic and biophysical patterns with regard to maize production in Kenya, based on geospatial analysis. She has a background in geography with focus on GIS and remote sensing imagery analysis.

    in this platform I have learnt a lot. kudos iHUB.

    I am a graduate of Agri. Engineering, and I’ve always wanted to follow up precision farming. I find the workshop on GIS a great step into that realisation.
    Use of technology for advancement is a dear thing to my heart. I am a tech. lover and an aspiring developer and just wish I would get a chance to grow this dream. I am a new practising graphic designer and would love to come to that event. I have already registered. thank you iHUB community, you inspire me
