Blue Marble Geographics (bluemarblegeo.com) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its 2016 Global Mapper Certified Training Program with a sold-out three-day class in Orlando, FL from December 6-8. Blue Marble’s hands-on instructor-led classes have proven to be an indispensable asset for countless users hoping to get the most out of the software. The certified training curriculum effectively introduces novice users to the fundamentals of GIS and spatial data processing while concurrently challenging experienced GIS professionals to improve workflow and productivity.

For over two decades, Blue Marble’s affordable, user-friendly GIS software has been meeting the needs of hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers throughout the world. Users come from all industries including software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as government departments and academic institutions.

As well as Orlando, Global Mapper training locations for 2016 included Hallowell, ME (Blue Marble Headquarters), Las Vegas, NV, Vancouver, BC, St Louis, MO, Montreal, QC, London, UK, and Munich, Germany. Additionally, certified Global Mapper partners conducted classes in South Africa, Brazil, and Germany.

For 2017, the Global Mapper training curriculum has been revised and updated to include the new functionality that has recently been incorporated into version 18 as well as the new design and layout of the software. The redesigned course will follow two days of intensive, hands-on training on the core functionality of the application supplemented by an optional day-long class focusing on the capabilities of the LiDAR Module. The instruction process will involve following a series of preconfigured workflows that touch on all of the features and functions of the software using a wide variety of sample datasets. Participants who complete all three days of training will be recognized as Certified Global Mapper users.

The schedule for 2017 includes classes in Denver, CO and Perth, Australia in May and Ottawa, ON in October. Additional dates and locations will be added to meet the demand for training in particular geographic areas.

As well as offering public classes, Blue Marble Applications Specialists are available to deliver company- or organization-specific training programs. With a customized curriculum and flexible schedule, these classes can be conducted onsite or online.
