CadastreTeaching CAD / GIS

Starting the cadastre course, 1 week

This week I'm starting the course "Applications of the Multifunctional Cadastre in the Definition of Urban Land Policies", We were finally chosen 37, according to the statement sent to us by more than 1,000 applicants from different countries.

These courses Through virtual campuses they are somewhat complicated due to the demand they have in terms of time to deliver tasks, be aware of notices and especially reading content that in this case goes through 75 pages per week. In many cases, the complications of time or difficulty in organizing put into play successfully completing these courses ... I hope to come out well in 7 weeks and keep you up to date with what the content catches my attention.
