Geospatial Analysis Project

Geographic Information Systems (GIS),

In this project-based course, you will design and execute a complete GIS-based analysis – from identifying a concept, question or issue you wish to develop, all the way to final data products and maps that you can add to your portfolio. Your completed project will demonstrate your mastery of the content in the GIS Specialization and is broken up into four phases: Milestone 1: Project Proposal - Conceptualize and design your project in the abstract, and write a short proposal that includes the project description, expected data needs, timeline, and how you expect to complete it. Milestone 2: Workflow Design - Develop the analysis workflow for your project, which will typically involve creating at least one core algorithm for processing your data. The model need not be complex or complicated, but it should allow you to analyze spatial data for a new output or to create a new analytical map of some type. Milestone 3: Data Analysis – Obtain and preprocess data, run it through your models or other workflows in order to get your rough data products, and begin creating your final map products and/or analysis. Milestone 4: Web and Print Map Creation – Complete your project by submitting usable and attractive maps and your data and algorithm for peer review and feedback.

What people are saying

final project

It was very helpful to bring all of my new skills together for one final project.

Thanks Very good course, although I would like to see the assignments for the final project/course not being peer reviewed but rather by professionals.

A big issue I had is that the final project requires you to make a web map on arcgis online, depending on the size of your project or if your final data is raster based this is almost impossible to do with the license the program provides you.

Nick Santos is a very good instructor.

I have two years of professional training as an Hydrographic Surveyor, but this really was all new to me and it was a pleasure to follow the courses.Thanks to Nick Santos, my fellow students (for evaluating my work and giving me valuable feedback) and the Regents of Coursera.org.

Excellent course, I really liked pursuing the project of my choice and facing and demolishing all the challenges I faced on my way to the completion of the project.

These are excellent courses in general, which helps to learn how to work in ArcGis.

uc davis

I want to say a big thank you to Courserа, UC Davis and personally to Nick Santos.

Many thanks to Coursera, UC Davis and personally to Nick Santos!

However, I really think that grading for the Final Project should be done by UC Davis.

I think it should be the duty of the UC Davis team to intervene in such a case, especially when you have such a small number of students doing the Specialization.

capstone project

I understand that it would be significant effort for them and I believe it wouldn't be paid but, I think at least for this Capstone Project should be considered some professional assessment of the job we done.

I appreciate feedback from my colleagues, too, but I am afraid most of us are not as competent as we should be to evaluate appropriately other's people Capstone Project work.

I realise that with the number of students undertaking the course this did not become very practical, so that the capstone project was peer reviewed instead.

I am now finishing the capstone project and it seems like we are 4 to 5 students active on the forums.When the grade is based on peer review, this is very stressful!
