I'm a big fan of google maps but only as a user. This course introduced me to the new technologies that are easy to learn for beginners and provided interesting information about 21st century maps. My deep bow to Professor Anthony Robinson and creators of this course.

I was just curious to learn a new subject. The course was great. The material is well explained. It took me from knowing nothing to being able to create maps using ArcGIS. Dr.Robinson is an amazing teacher, who made dummies to learn a new software and kept the course interesting from the beginning to end.
Recommend this course to anybody.

The course was a good mixture of lectures, quizzes, mapping assignments, and interesting videos about GIS application to solve real world problems and even saving lives. I learnt to make maps using ArcGIS that is a great free software. The only issue with this course is the requirement to participate on forums. It mattered for the grade. With more than 30,000 people in the class navigating through the river of posts wasn't easy or rewarding, rather time consuming and frustrating. Other than that, I think it's a 5 star class!

This was my first coursera class and I was pleased with the experience and the quality of the material. Professor Robinson was involved with the course, twitting, and sending reminders. The course introduced me to the new technologies and I learnt how to explore and create my own maps. Thank you very much for this wonderful experience.

I loved everything abut this course. Short engaging lectures, enthusiastic teacher, use of technology , and challenges. I knew little about the maps, or tools used to create interactive ones. This class taught me how to use ArcGIS and ESRI's Storytellling tools. I would recommend this course to anybody who loves maps and technology.
