Meet the Instructor

Are you interested in learning and using Geospatial Technology (GIS and GPS) for your projects and research?

Do not have time to take full college courses?

Then these workshops are for you!

These proven fast track workshops will have you operating GIS and GPS systems with confidence in just a few days. Our unique training includes hands-on instruction with Garmin, Trimble and ESRI hardware and software.


The objective of this workshop series is to provide applied training to teachers, students and environmental professionals in geospatial technology (global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing) for a variety of environmental/scientific disciplines.

In many of the scientific and environmental industries that require field work, the applied use of geospatial technologies has become an important and valued skill. The planning and development of line transects and water quality sampling stations, along with the collection of GPS data gathering for a variety of environmental monitoring, compliance, surveying, and other scientific disciplines, has become a critical project management component. The workshop series includes hands on GIS/GPS training and an actual applied field project in Costa Rica. workshops can be taken as a series or individually.
