Mobile GIS

Mobile GIS is a technology enabling us for taking Geographic Information Systems into the field. It integrates mobile devices (such as a PDA, tablet, mobile phones) to GIS software, with the GPS, wireless communications for Internet-based GIS access.

Curriculum 

Mobile GIS Basics: We start by focusing on basic concepts that are fundamental to understanding mobile GIS. These include data collection, visualization, and manipulation with a mobile environment.

Software and Tutorials: This course centers on the open Android platform and programming in object-oriented languages,  particularly Java and JavaScript. We will utilize existing APIs and SDKs available on the web.

Application Development: During this hands-on part you will choose an independent project where you will design, program, and implement a mobile GIS application. We will finish with an outlook on the future of mobile GIS.
