    GIS info

    How would you all go about go about learning the basics to GIS without taking classes in the traditional classroom. Any suggestions? I want to be able to put some GIS skills to use in a planning department. Also for the resume.

    A safe bet would be that any future GIS software would be developed by ESRI (ArcInfo, ArcView, ArcGIS). So - attend a class through them, there are online classes that are from free to a few $100 to instructor led classrooms which are most often around $1000. Regarding the software - there is a 30 day trial period for free.
