offers hands-on training for MapInfo (plus related software) and exploration.
Our course offerings range from those geared to first time users, to advanced
use in exploration work. The basic course work is written and presented
in tutorial fashion. The most successful courses we have taught
have been those which are somewhat customized.
courses are designed around chapters covering the basic MapInfo functions
and using exercises and examples from geology and exploration. The
slightly more advanced courses are organized around categories of exploration
problems/projects and have can involve up to four "Problems" attacked from
different standpoints, while simultaneously covering the more advanced
skills and tools in MapInfo and MapInfo add-on software.
aspects of these courses make them extremely successful: (1) an advance
questionnaire/survey of the attendees requesting input as to what they
want to have covered, and (2) receipt of some set (or sets) of 'in-house'
data to 'drop-in' to the tutorial(s) so that the exercises have tangible
meaning for the participants.
for training is extremely effective for the end users in the exploration
industry. Exploration geologists who are also experts in GIS
teach all of our courses. The exploration examples are meaningful,
the course book can be used as a reference manual for many commonly performed
operations, and our instructors have a wealth of experience to be tapped
during training sessions. Opting for a customized course is well
worth the extra investment of time and money as it is directed and focused,
addressing geographic areas and topics of immediate significance to the
end users. All shared data is held STRICTLY confidential and proprietary.
Cost and Duration: Most
courses run for 2 days, at your location, for up to 10 participants, with
a set daily fee (as opposed to a per attendee charge.) You receive two
color copies of the manual/tutorial, with a CD containing the data as well
as a copy of the manual for your own reproduction.
