ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps, data and analytical models, and geographic information. It is used for: creating and using maps; compiling geographic data; analyzing mapped information; sharing and discovering geographic information; using maps and geographic information in a range of applications; and managing geographic information in a database.
Given the importance of ArcGIS to government and the private sector, the college offers a program whereby a student can earn a certificate in GIS Sciences and Technologies. Organizations use ArcGIS for:
- Planning and Analysis
- Asset/Data Management
- Operational Awareness
- Field Workforce
The Trimble Suite can provide users with the GPS Analyst extension for the ArcGIS software if desired.
