Description:

GeoTech Center presents a series of model courses on GIS, spatial technologies, and related subjects to provide students with the professional skills necessary to succeed in geospatial technology careers. Data Acquisition and Management introduces students to the fundamentals of data creation and formatting in GIS using a series of lectures, readings, quizzes, examinations, and labs, and is designed to follow two other of GeoTech’s GIS courses. This third course focuses on “fundamental concepts of primary GIS data creation and discusses quantitative techniques for collection, classification, and management of geographical data.” The ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 software is required for this course.

Course Information:

The Data Acquisition and Management course can be implemented either as a stand-alone instructional unit to those with the necessary prerequisite knowledge, or after completion of the GST 101 (Introduction to Geospatial Technology) and GST 102 (Spatial Analysis) courses offered by GeoTech. It is arranged into seven modules with associated learning objectives and related assignments. After creating a free account on The National Information, Security & Geospatial Technologies Consortium (NISGTC), viewers can access the seven course lectures as well as the associated course materials in zip files. Each lecture corresponds with a module in the course. The seven modules include: Reviewing the Basics of Geospatial Data, Basic Database Design, Database Schema Implementation, Vector Data Structure, Spatial Data Quality, Raster Data Structure, and Data Sources.

Upon completion of the course, students will have an understanding of the collection, conversion, and constructing of spatial data; the ability to collect, create, process, and utilize spatial data; and understanding of the similarities and differences between data models and formats; and the basics of GIS data storage and interoperability.

All of the course materials are contained in 5 zip files: Course Development Documents, Course Download, Lab Materials, and two folders of Lab Data; as well as a Syllabus. New viewers should begin by viewing the Syllabus pdf and move on to the Course Development Documents zip file.

Course Contents:

The attached files associated with Data Acquisition and Management course exist in a variety of formats including .docx, .doc, .tmp, pdf, .xml, .story, and a wide variety of laboratory data file types. Below is a list of the files organized by zip file, with the file name and size provided in parenthesis.
