There are two completely online mapping courses starting in January 2016 at the University of Kentucky.

MAP 671 – Intro to New Mapping focuses on desktop GIS applications and MAP 672 – Programming for Web Mapping introduces students to Javascript, HTML and CSS. MAP 672 works well for those who have work experience in desktop GIS but have not yet begun web mapping.  If this describes you, please email us so we can review your experience and consider an advanced enrollment.

Both of these courses are part of the New Maps Plus graduate certificate (11 credits) and lay the groundwork for the Master’s of Science (30 credits) in digital mapping at the University of Kentucky.  More details are available at the program’s webpage or Facebook page.

Applications for the session beginning January 17th are due January 3, 2016.
