    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

    Hello everybody. Welcome to this tutorial.

    I will try to guide you to analyze satellite images and to create a beautiful map .

    The course covers a theoretical aspect of GIS, installing GIS, downloading GIS free data from the web, importing the data in the software, creating some vector layers, manual and automatic classification of satellite images, applying some basic spatial functions and exporting the result. At the end you will be able to create a map.

    Hope you find it useful.
