Learn From Professionals

When professionals begin to move beyond placing points on map the depth and complexity of map-making increases greatly. Our instructors typically work as GIS Analysts or Engineers at local companies and are excited to share their knowledge.

Chris pulled a lot of examples from real-life scenarios, like his work experiences, which was interesting. Also, he had a broad range of knowledge; from GIS itself, to the history of maps, to the artistic side of mapping, etc.

our approach

Our workshops meet once a week to allow students time to process topics, perform exercises, and discuss challenges with the instructor.

We consider the workshops as stepping stones which enable professionals to engage in further exploration and learning of geospatial or map-making.
