Maps and the Geospacial Revolution-Coursera Class

Developing new skills can be an important part of the job search.  LL.M. Alumna Jennifer Fiser, Farm Program Specialist at USDA, recently alerted to us a Coursera class on Maps and the Geospacial Revolution that sounds useful for anyone thinking of going into local/state/federal government or any other organization where data analysis could be part of their job.  Jennifer reports that FSA handles a lot of spatial data and always needs people beyond the GIS specialists to understand it. That is certainly the case with many other agencies as well.  We pass along the link to anyone who might be interested, especially those who are job hunting.
