Certificate of Attendance


The Clemson Center for Geospatial Technologies offers students a Certificate of Attendance for those who attend our entire series of recommended workshops. GIS is a very broad field that cannot be learned in just one session. Students often find themselves struggling with data issues and/or analysis tools after attending only an introductory workshop.


Part of our mission is to make sure students at Clemson interested in GIS have a guideline that ensures an effective yet smooth learning curve in learning the most up-to-date tools available in the field of GIS today. Our pathway is comprehensive and focuses on gaining firsthand experience in GIS.


Below are some of the most common case scenarios for students pursuing our certificate:

  • Students who want to expand their skills, advance their careers, or apply for internships that require GIS expertise.

  • Faculty whose research involves GIS and want to make sure their students have all the basic GIS skills necessary to perform solid research and spatial analysis.



The following are the recommended hands-on workshops series. All our workshops are 3 hours each, making a total of 21 hours of hands-on instruction in GIS.

  1. Introduction to GIS 

  2. GIS Data Creation and Management 

  3. Working with Tabular data

  4. Field Data Collection using GIS

  5. Basic Spatial Statistics

  6. Intermediate Spatial Analysis OR Spatial Statistics with GIS

  7. Introduction to Cloud Mapping with ArcGIS Online and Story Maps

Certificate of Attendance Graduation

Congratulations to our CCGT graduating classes! Since the spring 2016 semester, groups of motivated students and post-doctoral researchers have completed all of our Introductory GIS series of workshops and received their Certificates of Attendance during a ceremony held in our collaborative room.

The recipients come from various disciplines, such as civil engineering, landscape architecture, and urban planning, environmental engineering, the geosciences, city and regional planning, and education. CCGT is excited to see how our graduating class will incorporate GIS into their research and careers!
