Graduate Certificate in Digital Mapping

Greetings from the University of Kentucky Department of Geography!

Are you interested in web mapping? Check out the online Graduate Certificate in Digital Mapping program at the University of Kentucky – we can help take your GIS career to the next level. While there are a full range of courses, we recommend experienced GIS professionals begin with MAP 672 – Programming for Web Mapping.

In addition to MAP 672, we will also be offering MAP 671 – Intro to New Mapping (focusing on a desktop GIS workflow for web production) as well as MAP 673 – Design for Interactive Web Mapping. MAP 672 introduces students to JavaScript, HTML and CSS and is perfect for those who have work experience in desktop GIS, but have not yet begun web mapping.  If this describes you, please email us so we can review your experience and consider an advanced enrollment.

All of these courses are offered completely online and are part of the New Maps Plus Graduate Certificate (11 credits).  More details are available at the program’s webpage or Facebook page.

Designed with all levels of experience in mind, the New Maps Plus program at the University of Kentucky offers an unparalleled online learning experience. Applications for the session beginning April 17th are due April 2nd, 2017. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions.
