    • Event: Web-based GIS and Mapping Course Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya. Event Date: 30th April – 11th May 2018            NITA CERTIFIED   RECENT CLIENTS   INTRODUCTION Web mapping focuses on disseminating and processing geographic information by means of Internet and World Wide Web. Combination of the web and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) has unlocked the potential of GIS, and put online maps and geospatial intelligence in the offices/homes of millions and the hands of billions. The increasing flexibility and interoperability of web mapping technologies has opened new opportunities for Web Based Mappers. Both non-GIS users and GIS experts can do more now, than ever to share maps over the internet. Web maps can easily deliver up to date information,maps are generated automatically from databases, and they can display information in almost real-time. They don't need to be printed, mastered and distributed. Web GIS has immense applicability to e-government, e-business, e-science, and all aspects of daily life. Government employees can utilize Web GIS to improve public services delivery and boost collaboration across agencies. Regardless of the sector, businesses can use Web GIS to enhance their existing business models and create new ones. Researchers can find new solutions to meet the challenges of the new frontiers. Web GIS has great practical value to our world today and into the future. WHO SHOULD APPLY? Non GIS Users, GIS experts, Cartographers, Geographers, Geoscientist, surveyors, Planners, Database administrator, system administrator, IT expert, software engineers, M&E expert. REQUIREMENTS No prior knowledge of GIS is required.

    • Hello again, I am trying to delineate watershed using ArcHydro. I wrongly marked the outlet and generated a batch point.  i would like to delete this and start with new one. How could this be done Thanks, Maya
    • Hello all, I am trying to project a raster dem file using tool project raster in ArcMap 10.3. The tool runs and gives the green tick showing it is complete.

Could someone tell what am i missing? Thanks, Maya
    • Hi everyone, 
      I have a project which is require to extract bamboo by using remote sensing technology.
      Is there any way to extract bamboo from other forest using worldview 3 8 bands multispectral ?
      Looking forward for your feedback.

      Best Regards,
    • Hello, In the operation of the preprocessing Landsat 8 OLI image, and after applying the rescaling on the FLAASH image, I got all the Band's MIN are 0 and all the MAX are 1, which isn't normal. Where should this problem occured ? Thank you,
