GIS Institute

Twice a year in January and June, the CGA offers a two-week intensive training in geographic information systems (GIS). The program is designed for Harvard graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty and other researchers who want to learn spatial analysis and apply GIS methods in their research. Through the nine days, participants will be introduced to geographic information science and technology; spatial data development, management, and manipulation; spatial analysis concepts, tools, and procedures; hands-on use of ArcGIS and similar software; tours of GIS resources on campus, guest speakers from diverse disciplines introducing research with GIS in their fields; and one-on-one consultation and step-by-step guidance through the participants’ individual projects. The last day of the program will be devoted to project presentations.
