Staying abreast of science and technology developments is not merely a luxury in geospatial science, but an absolute necessity. To stay at the forefront of their research areas, ANR scientists need to stay proficient with the rapidly evolving technology, spatial sciences, new types of data, cloud-based computing, and data collection technologies. Training is part of the core business of IGIS, and through training we can create and solidify partnerships with universities and industry, help ANR’s volunteer programs to engage volunteers, and help tell ANR’s story through case studies.

IGIS is pleased to offer a variety of hands-on GIS, web mapping, data collection, and remote sensing training workshops throughout California, typically on a year-round basis (see our list of offerings below).  However, due to COVID-19 consideration, in person trainings have been temporarily restricted. To adapt to this new circumstance, IGIS has began focusing on alternative educational efforts, such as educational videos, technical notes, blog posts, weekly office hours, and monthly drone chat meet-ups.  Additionally, we developed stand-alone online curriculum for 2021, including introductory modules for ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Story Maps, ArcGIS Pro, Mobile Field Tools, and Pix4D Mapper.

If you don’t see something on the list and would like to talk to us about customizing a workshop, please let us know.

Please refer to the following calendar to find more information on upcoming virtual trainings and for training events near you (when post-COVID operations resume). For more information regarding an event, simply click on its title in the calendar.
