    Map making professional with over 6 years of experience.

    I have worked for small and large companies in various fields, from housing agency to GPS manufacturer looking to develop super apps. I love to share my experience and knowledge with other professionals interested to develop their skill.

    I constantly try to differentiate myself and the courses I help develop and to make sure the students gets the best content both in audio-video presentation and the correct rate of theory to practice within my courses.

    I have studied map making at the bachelor level and geomatics at master level, at the University of Babes-Bolyai, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

    I am open to communication and suggestions for further development.

    What you'll learn

    This course will take you from a beginner in ArcGIS, from downloading data, to performing basic functions. Alonso will teach you the basic concepts, how to perform the main features in the GIS software, use the geoprocessing tools, how to export to AutoCAD, while on the hydrology side Konrad will teach you how to perform hydrology related tasks such as Calculate Flow Direction And Flow Accumulation, Watershed Delineation, Stream Segments And Catchments, Spatial Join To Catchments as well as map layout with elements.

    Work side-by-side with the presentation and feel free to ask questions when you don't understand something. This tool is highly looked after in the hydrological field.
