Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Corissa Jesseman, and welcome to my course, iOS Mapping Fundamentals. I'm an independent iOS software developer. With iOS 6, Apple dropped Google Maps and switched to their own map. In this course, we're going to cover the essentials of core location and map kit 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, and 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 in your app. 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.
