    yesterday — Geographic Information Systems Laboratory MOOC – Organisé en deux parties, le MOOC SIG propose une introduction aux Systèmes d’Information Géographique (SIG), comprenant des bases théoriques et pratiques, qui ne requiert pas de connaissances préalables. Il permet de créer des bases de données spatiales et de fabriquer des cartes géographiques. Il s’agit d’un cours pratique qui repose sur l’utilisation de logiciels libres, notamment QGIS. En suivant la 1ère partie, on explore les principes de base de la numérisation du territoire et du stockage des géodonnées. La deuxième partie porte sur les méthodes d'analyse spatiale et les techniques de représentation des géodonnées. On y apprend à analyser les propriétés spatiales de variables discrètes.
