Technical Marine GIS Training for Marine Professionals
Who is it for? What will I learn?
We are a licensed distributor for Marine GIS and are experts at using it to manipulate marine data. Most GIS software training is developed and targeted towards managing terrestrial assets. As our training and mentoring is specifically for those working in the marine environment and its specific challenges, we can help you apply GIS to manage and manipulate marine and environmental data while implementing best practice.
Our GIS trainer is an experienced marine user and can talk to you with an understanding about specific issues faced in the marine environment – be it shoal bias or complex coordinate reference systems. We use marine data examples and exercises so you use data familiar to your environment.
Our standard courses always allow some time for specific user interaction to ensure the questions you have are answered. Alternatively we can provide customised training programmes which are specific to your needs.
Introduction to Marine GIS – 2-day technical training course introducing the concept of Marine GIS (through Cadcorp GIS Or QGIS) using marine specific examples. Provides both lecture based training and practical exercises. Usually this is run on-site but we can also run these centrally at our Alton office.
Advanced GIS (custom designed courses) – 2-day technical training course extends the use and knowledge of GIS to look at specific topics in detail. Training is customised by selecting the modules that are relevant to your use of data. Modules include Data Analysis, Using Databases, Data Editing and Topology.
When is it held?
We run our GIS training throughout the year. These are usually run in house (at a venue of the clients choice) OR at our Alton Office. Contact Us for availability.
What are the costs?
£1900 (£950 + VAT per tutor, per day) for up to 6 people + travel expenses.
Well presented course, at the right level and interactive
This training is a significant upgrade to my data management and other spheres of my professional development journey. I'm excited to implement the new knowledge and skills I acquired, furthering my contributions to Marine Conservation, Youth Capacity Development and Environmental Sustainability.
