What is LARSGIS?
Louisiana Remote Sensing & Geographic Information Systems Institute (LARSGIS) is a nonprofit corporation. Our mission is to foster learning about the earth, its inhabitants and the use of Remote Sensing (RS) science and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology. GIS technology uses computer hardware, software and raw data to explore the fundamental principle of geography and its importance in peoples’ lives. 

The Louisiana Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (LARSGIS) Institute recently received unanimous approval from the Louisiana Workforce Investment Council (WIC) to begin Industry-Based Certification programs.

Geographic Information Systems will begin offering an GIS IBC through Jump Star beginning Fall 2018. For more information please contact Fran Harvey at [email protected]. Put in the subject line GIS IBC. We look forward to hearing from you.
