Review Summary

The GIS for Beginners CD-ROM, produced by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), provides tools and techniques for understanding the theories and applications of geographic information systems (GIS).

The best part of this course is the integration with free software programs that will support learning after the course has been completed. This type of learning resource can be very effective in expanding the use of technologies and bridging the technological divide.
