Free GIS Educational Seminars from GeoDATA

Training 4 GIS, the training and consultancy division of The GeoInformation Group™, announced today that it is offering its sixth national GeoDATA seminar series showcasing geographic data and the benefits they bring to those within both the public and private sectors.

This successful series of events will retain its popular format of educational presentations and accompanying exhibition. As a company responsive to change, Training4GIS has evolved the programme content to focus on the business applications and return on investment issues affecting the geographic information industry.

The free to attend 1-day seminars are accredited by The Association of Geographic Information and are worth four CPD points towards the Chartered Geographer (GIS) status. The series will commence in London on 13 May followed by Manchester on 15 May, Cardiff on 20 May and Glasgow on 22 May 2008.

Leading data suppliers and data management specialists scheduled to participate at this event will include: The GeoInformation Group, Autodesk, British Geological Survey, Cadcorp Ltd, Bentley Systems, STAR-APIC, KOREC, Intermap Technologies (UK) Ltd, Environment Systems and The Association for Geographic Information.

The new seminar content will include educational presentations focusing on working practices and the latest technologies, and applications for service delivery. Topics will include:

# Open standards database management and data warehousing
# Data from different sources – Interoperability
# Application of data collected by GPS – have we identified all the applications?
# Time and the 3D – addressing some of the problems
# 3D & 4D Geological data
# Directions for the future of the GI industry
# Will imagery data take over from the vector map?
# The challenge of sharing data in a large organisation
# Web mapping – the opportunities and the pitfalls
# Integrated Project Management – Bridging the GAP between CAD, GIS & Content Management

“As the only event of this sort in the UK, Training4GIS has a unique opportunity to reflect the issues affecting GI users. In providing an independent platform for users to communicate with vendors from all aspects of the world of GIS, GeoDATA is an established event in the GI calendar.” comments Fiona Cocks, Training Manager for Training 4 GIS.
