GIS is for everyone! ArcGIS Online for Organizations (AGO) offers a way to create interactive web maps and web-map applications which can be shared with any website user. With nothing more than a web browser, workshop attendees will learn how to take advantage of ready-to-use online geospatial data and map resources to quickly put GIS to work. They will learn how to create an interactive web map and then create and publish a user-friendly web-map application that can be easily consumed by planners, project managers, customers, and citizens.
Anyone who wants to learn how to create interactive web maps and applications.

Our Students Speak
“I now have very good starting knowledge of the program and would feel confident if someone asked me to create a map using AGO.”
