Excellent course! I now feel completely competent in using ArcGIS.

A good course with clear instructional materials and excellent presentation. However the reason it does not get 5 stars is that when I signed up to the GIS specialisation in April 2016 I was led to believe that course instructors would review my capstone project. Indeed, this was one of the incentives for me in signing on to the specialisation. I realise that with the number of students undertaking the course this did not become very practical, so that the capstone project was peer reviewed instead. I found this somewhat disappointing though as the feedback gained was often quite limited and it reduced the value of the Certificate.

This course, this whole specialization, was extremely challenging and at times frustrating but also rewarding and very thorough in what it covers in GIS. Further, Nick Santos is an outstanding professor who gives the necessary time to students!

Great...
