I enjoyed this part most of the three courses in the GIS specialization that I have earned certificates. Thanks to Dr. Nick Santos for his interactive teaching, assignments and projects.
What I liked most about the course is the gradual progression is so great! Great deal of efforts invested for making this course so awesome. I had a great time leaning.
What prior experience do I need to take this course?
You should have some experience in GIS before taking this course - it's not for absolute beginners. This is the third course in the Geographic Information Systems specialization, and you should have taken the first two courses in the specialization, "Fundamentals of GIS" and "GIS Data Formats, Design, and Quality", here on Coursera before enrolling in this course, or have equivalent experience. If you're not sure if you have equivalent experience, you can audit those courses for free to look through the materials and fill in any gaps. Search for them by name on the site to find them.
Since all of the courses in the specialization run monthly, you won't miss out on this course by enrolling in those courses first. This course will have a new session once you have the skills needed to take it.
