Choose Intro GIS/GPS, Intro ArcGIS or both for a full week of map camp!

VCGI is partnering with VT Technical College to offer up to 5 days of GIS training! Trainings are offered at both the Williston and Randolph campuses so pick the dates, locations, and topics that meet your needs.

Intro to GIS/GPS ($100) :

Participants will gain an understanding of fundamental geospatial concepts which they will then apply in learning how to use online mapping applications, consumer grade GPS receivers, and QGIS open source GIS software. QGIS will be used to explore and display geospatial data, to create new geospatial data, to perform simple geospatial analysis, and to compose basic maps appropriate for printing or publishing. Participants will develop a mapping question or project that they will explore and build on throughout the course.

July 22-23 (Williston): https://vtcc-events.vtc.edu/register.html?id=171

August 5-6 (Randolph): https://vtcc-events.vtc.edu/register.html?id=172

 

Intro to ArcGIS ($300):

Participants will learn how to use ESRI's ArcGIS 10.0 software to explore and display geospatial data, to create new geospatial data and include it in their map projects, to perform geospatial analyses, to find and acquire free and public GIS data, and to compose basic maps appropriate for printing or publishing. Participants will develop a mapping question or project that they will explore and build on throughout the course.

July 24-26 (Williston): https://vtcc-events.vtc.edu/register.html?id=174

August 7-9 (Randolph): https://vtcc-events.vtc.edu/register.html?id=175
