ACCC Offering New GIS Course; Fall Classes Begin Aug. 31

August 19, 2009

Atlantic Cape Community College is offering Introduction to Geographic Information Systems for the first time this fall. There is a great demand in government and industry for professionals with the knowledge and skills in the area of GIS, a computer mapping system that allows us to interpret and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports and charts. Training in GIS also is useful for students pursuing careers in environmental science, engineering, business, criminal justice and more.

GIST101 is an elective course that will be offered at the Mays Landing and Cape May campuses and online. For more information about GIS at ACCC, visit
