Geographica GIS Pills

Friends of Geographica We have talked about some of the innovations they are including in their training processes, so we take the opportunity to promote their initiatives.Geographica

Geographica is a company dedicated to several branches of the geomático spectrum, that has developed works with strategic clients that will guarantee the results.

Apart from the letter G in green tone, I identify a lot with Geographica because of its orientation towards free code, both its developments and training take preference in the use of OpenSource programs such as Geoserver, gvSIG, PostGIS, SEXTANTE, Kosmo, Degree, to name Some. Hence, their preference for the Java environment is marked, although they have a multidisciplinary team accustomed to betting on the C ++ line as well as the proprietary software and use of the business fabric that OSGeo implies.

For this date apart from the courses that we already knew are including particularized versions of GIS courses in the topics of Territorial Planning and Geomarketing. These modules are calling you Pills, doing -I suppose and because it is in its principles- reference to the traditional medicine practice of the traditional pharmaceutical, before the packaged tablets arrived, which worked a mortar of just what was required and that safe after the experience and knowledge ended up being an infallible solution.

The methodology seems very good, because they use the Use Case as a technique, ideal for short specialized courses where complicating theoretical aspects would be a waste, time that people require to open their minds to the possibilities and understanding of what the software can do. For both courses, ArcGIS with a duration of 10 blended hours is used.

This is a course aimed at all professionals, students or companies that want to know the potential of GIS for spatial planning.

One Reply to "GIS Pills of Geographica"

  1. First of all a pleasure to read you again. I regret the disappearance for so long.
    Regarding Geographica, I must say that I "feel like" his way of working, innovating many times in a way that engages users to work at the bottom of things.

    I know I work with proprietary Software, but that doesn't mean I don't like it and "play" with OpenSource. I would like to have more time to devote, but that is another matter.

    Congratulations on your site and I hope to continue reading you.

    From Chile, Manuel.

    GIS Analyst
