Course Description

215-GIS - Beyond the Basics: Web Maps and File Sharing Services - Part 2

This course discusses online resources and data sharing techniques for engineers using Geographical Information Systems (GIS). It is for those wanting to increase their technical skills or stay competitive in a world with an ever increasing move towards Cloud-based computing and technology, all while earning continuing education credits. The course is written in a (somewhat) technical nature for the engineer. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to connect to various GIS servers, how to use online services, and finally, how to prepare maps and data for sharing either among peers, or as a type of service to the public. This course demonstrates the benefits of accessing online web map services through an example tailored for engineers that allows them to follow along using their own computers.

To this end, this course offers background information and explanations for why a user would follow the steps prescribed. It explores the benefits as well as challenges in using online mapping services. The reader is introduced to ESRI's ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS Online. A glossary of terms relevant to this course is provided for infrequent users of ArcGIS who may need a refresher or an explanation of the new terms presented herein. In addition, the author provides user-friendly tips for how to manipulate GIS services, and directs the reader to other online help options. Sidebar information provides additional insight into the background and current uses of GIS services, as well as server limitations. The course was written with the intent that it could be used as a reference guide for office and field engineers, project managers, and others needing access to these services. Hopefully, it is as interesting to the reader as it is informative. The reader does not need an ArcGIS license for this course, but is encouraged to preview the course introduction for assumptions made with regards to its intended level of audience.

I found this course difficult. I should have read the requirements before signing up for it. Probably would have not taken the course.

This course could use a table of contents. I felt that it was very hard to follow. It seem more rambling that any thing else. The course exam multiple answers did not seem to match up to the course itself.

More images and step by step instructions would be helpful. The first portion of the course was very hard to follow.
