Great course. Quite challenging, huge amount of info shared and employed in the assignments. This makes the course very thorough yet as mentioned, challenging to complete. Not for the faint at heart!
Awesome..... The lectures are very helpful to the students or gis learners who wants to do some on-line, especially the final project was awesome... i really enjoyed and learned much more things...

The course needs more practice items that does not require to buy a GIS book.

Nick Santos is fantastic and I learned a lot in this course. However, my qualms are with coursera and the structure of the peer review assignment. I think I deserved full points on the final project (one reviewer did in fact award me full points) but the other reviewer graded harshly and plainly graded wrong, without any reason as to why they marked me down. Their comment was "good". Its like they did not even look at my project. There needs to be better quality monitoring in the grading for this course because its very discouraging and frankly infuriating that this happened.

Well structured but as with the previous course in this specialization there is way too much focus on ArcGIS. The course is called "GIS Data Formats, Design and Quality," not "Processing Data in ArcGIS." The module on ArcGIS Online is just unnecessary. There is nothing to be learned in that module that can be applied outside of an ArcGIS context.

Major lack in instructor support but a decent intro to GIS. Also, some clunks in hw instructions that slow things down. The first lecture should be on getting your student license bc it takes a few days to receive.

Scattered and lacking focus. The material is all there, but it feels like a laundry list of miscellany that didn't make it into the previous or next course in the specialisation.
By Galen M•
Good content, crummy quiz structure and grading.
By Paul G•
ok but not for me
By Giuseppe B•
some confusion arise in some lessons, issue with software well recognized by authors. so and so on the whole

The grading on the final assignment is taking away all my pleasure in taking the course. I should score 100%, but reviewers can't seem to see all layers in the map. And that is while I've checked the online map on multiple computers and in 4 different browsers.
It seems to me that this is an assignment that shouldn;t be structured that way. For me this is grading by chance. Can the reviewer see the map or not? If they can see it, I get a 100% mark, but if they cannot see one of the layers I will flunk.
