New MOOC on Geographic Information Systems - based on the use of open source solutions
We just released a new MOOC on Geographic Information Systems (Part 1). This english version is based on a previous french speaking course elaborated in the context of a collaborative project between the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL MOOCs), Switzerland, the Centre Universitaire de Recherche et d'Application en Teledetection (CURAT) - Universite Felix HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY in Abidjan-Cocody (Ivory Coast) and the Department of Geomatics at the Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE) in Dakar, Senegal.
More information and link to the MOOC "Geographical Information Systems - Part1" available here.
A "Moocsig" Facebook page and related group for both english and french languages are available here. The group constitutes an exchange forum between participants and teachers: https://www.facebook.com/moocsig.
Please visit and disseminate to people looking for resources to learn GIS using open source solutions.
Thank you and best regards, Stephane
