Geographical & Mapping Information Management System: Theory And Practice Software Training

  REF: CE57  DATES: 18 - 22 Nov 2019  (One Week)  VENUE: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)-Grand Millenium Hotel


This course describes tasks and issues that project managers must address at different stages of GIS project development by striking a balance between theory and practice. Topics include strategic planning, work program development, project management techniques, budgeting, staffing, sustaining program support, and managing consultants and vendors. This course presents an overview of the successful and unsuccessful techniques for implementing GIS. Issues covered include how to gain organizational support and how to revive floundering GIS programs. The participants will be working in small discussion groups to address issues pertinent to real case studies. The course will be based on real world examples. It is a must for anyone embarking on a GIS project, involved with a less than satisfactory GIS, or who is seeking ways to improve a successful implementation.
At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Gain knowledge in managing a GIS Project in all its phases: User Needs Survey, Needs Assessment, Database Design, System Design, Data Conversion, Application Development, and Training.
  • Get hands on experience in managing a GIS project.
  • Acquire all skills needed to prepare a GIS project documentation such as request for proposal, proposal, and various project deliverable documentations.
  • Better understand the issues of staffing and budgeting, team work, and consultant-client relationship through real world case studies.
