GIS in the context of permaculture design
This course is designed for students who have little or no prior experience with GIS, regardless of their skill level or experience in permaculture or other disciplines. With GIS, you can create more efficient and effective systems by capturing, storing, analyzing, and presenting geographic information. GIS enables users to observe from a wider angle and combine views that are invisible to the naked eye, providing a comprehensive approach to project design.
By learning these skills, students will gain additional knowledge that can help them design better permaculture, nature conservation, or environmental management projects. Participants will receive a detailed handbook that will serve as a valuable guide for future projects.
