Making Maps the Google Way & GIS on pennies a day Test Drive
The VT Center for Geographic Information is partnering with UNH Extension to bring two hands-on workshops to VT Technical College in Randolph on March 30. $50/workshop.
1) 9AM – NOON: Learn how to make interactive and 3D maps using free Google mapping tools! This course explores the basics of Google Earth and Google Maps with a special focus on creating your own maps to share with others. Make Google Earth and Google Maps work for you on PC’s and Macs!
2) 1PM -4PM: Take a variety of full-functioned, free GIS programs for a test drive! After a brief intro to the software, hands-on exercises will provide a framework to learn the basics of the programs, including how to create maps, edit GIS data and do basic geoprocessing. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data to use after they understand the basics of the software.
