Why Learn GIS in Nigeria Now?
Learning it now provides a wonderful job opportunity as never before (READ BELOW)
As the situation surrounding coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to evolve, GIS professionals are supporting the community at large with location intelligence, geographic information system (GIS) and mapping software, services, and materials that people are using to help monitor, manage, and communicate the impact of the outbreak. Use and share these resources to help your community or organization respond effectively.
With location intelligence from GIS technology, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of where to help the government focus their efforts to prevent, protect against, and mitigate the effects of the complex threats and hazards found in your community. Armed with data-driven insights, you can better respond to and recover from the threats that pose the greatest risk to keeping your community safe—all in real time.
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS integrates many types of data.
It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data, such as patterns, relationships, and situations—helping users make smarter decisions.
Hundreds of thousands of organizations in virtually every field are using GIS to make maps that communicate, perform analysis, share information, and solve complex problems around the world. This is changing the way the world works.

Who uses GIS
GIS software is being used widely in almost all fields. GIS software are used by individual, people, communities, research institutions, environmental scientists, health organisations, land use planners, businesses, and government agencies at all levels.
Urban Planning, Management & Policy
Oil and Gas companies
Oil and gas data is strongly connected to geography. For example, oil exploration, pipeline construction and the environment use GIS. All of these features are spatial in nature.
Uses range from information storage; spatial pattern identification; visual presentation of spatial relationships; remote sensing – all sometimes made available through internet web interfaces, involving large numbers of users, data collectors, specialists and/or community participants.
Many government agencies use GIS software to help in planning and organizing their geographic data. Many police departments, fire departments and other emergency services have begun to use GIS to help in their daily operations.
GIS software can help officials track crime, find the shortest route to emergencies and more.
