Hi everyone, my name is Corissa Jesseman and welcome to my course iOS Mapping Fundamentals.

I am an independent iOS software developer.

With iOS 6, Apple dropped Google Maps and switched to their own maps.

In this course, we are going to cover the essentials of Core Location and MapKit in iOS.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
Permissions and user location
Displaying and drawing on the map
Local search and geocoding
Region and iBeacon monitoring

By the end of this course you will know the essentials of mapping and location services in iOS and be able to incorporate them into your apps.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of iOS software development.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Map Kit with the iOS Mapping Fundamentals course, at Pluralsight.
