Blue Marble Announces First Global Mapper Training to be Held in Australia

 
Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation, visualization and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organizations. Blue Marble is known for its applied geodesy training courses using the Blue Marble Desktop and the Geographic Calculator.  These popular courses are well received across all industries but resonate particularly well with users who need a refresher on certain GIS concepts and a hands-on training experience that applies the concepts with software.  The Global Mapper training courses will leverage that course design reviewing appropriate concepts and applying them with the software.  The courses are being held in conjunction with the ISPRS conference and are one day only events.
 
Attendance at this class will provide both novice and experienced users an opportunity to learn about and utilize the principal features and functions of Global Mapper (v. 13.2). Employing a hands-on approach, each class will cover the key elements of the software including interface navigation; file, layer, and project management; data access and importing; feature creation and editing; cartographic rendering and visual customization; 3-D modeling and analysis; and data exporting and sharing.
 
No previous experience is necessary to attend the class however a working knowledge of the principals of GIS, as well as the key associated file formats, is recommended. Participants should bring a windows-based laptop computer for the purpose of using the software during the class. Evaluation copies of Global Mapper (v. 13.2) as well as the necessary sample data files will be provided to all attendees though attendees must bring their own laptop.
 
“We are pleased to roll out our first Australian based Global Mapper training program,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham.  “We know these courses will be well received and we are excited to provide our users with assistance in leveraging the program to its fullest extents.”
