Intro to GIS and GPS Summer Trainings Scheduled

2015 GIS Training at VERMONT TECH: Registration Open!

VTC hosts an Introduction to GIS and GPS 2-day class taught by VCGI staff. Trainings are offered at both the Williston and Randolph campuses so pick the dates and location 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. Training manual chapters from last year's class are posted at our training page so you can check out what is covered or use them for self-training.
