By the end of the conference students should be able to:
• Define and appreciate the utility of Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
• Describe the various key concepts undertaken under Geographic Information systems.
• Use GIS software to map different phenomena
• Acquire different data sets using remote sensing (data collection)
• Appreciate the methods of data collection in the field
• Perform Data analysis and mapping in a GIS

Assumed knowledge
Basic digital literacy is needed to complete the practicals
