It’s truly an odd thing announcing this because I’ve probably said it like 3 or 4 times up here…well – hinted it was coming. Now it’s here. I announce QGIS Part II: Editing and Data.
Now for some explanation. This class picks up where part I leaves off….or explores the software even further.
- Data Conversion
- Databases (spatialite).
I spent way more time than planned on Spatialite. I also spent more time comparing and contrasting with ArcGIS. It’s important that these classes take the stance of best tool for the job. Which is the back bone of the spatial connect process. Process over software. Make your software less of a center point. Worry about your data.
Price – $325 and it runs one day. I say that and if I can get Intro I and II backed up against each other I’m probably going to do two days for a combined price of $575. It’s not much of a discount but it’s still pretty affordable and I give you a lot of information for the price. Plus you have the option of calling me up whenever.
Next thing – Online classes. I’ve been asked. I’ve had offers made. I’m still going to go no (for now). It’s important (to me) you get the best use of your time and I still argue an online class isn’t going to do that. Yes it opens up the training to more people and I might change my mind at some point. For now I’m still going with “in person” for training. I guess that’s still the old ESRI Authorized trainer coming out in me. Yes I was one of those also.
Scheduling – the last two classes have taken a more organic approach. My best class was in Kingsport TN and was brought about by the SE Tennessee Development District and the local NETGIS users group. As the rest of the year moves on I’m probably going to try to take that approach – As I continue folding this more into the spatial connect process I will push to do training for groups (clients) with a vested interest in expanding their GIS setup…and the occasional conferences. So contact me if you are interested in bringing the class to your organization – the only thing that might change the price is if I have to drive longer than 3 or 4 hours (or fly).
