TeachMeGIS Wants to Be Your GIS Training Resource

‘Collaboration allows us to know more than we are capable of knowing ourselves.’ –Paul Solarz

It’s a fantastic thing to see figurative lightbulbs go on across the room at NSGIC meetings and in the socials as the top GIS professionals from every state come together to share knowledge and ideas.

At TeachMeGIS, we see this happen on a smaller scale nearly every day during our GIS classes. The instructor demonstrates a spatial join tool, and someone with point data says, “Hey you, you with the polygon data, let’s try this! I’ve needed this for years!”

What better way to increase collaboration within and between organizations than bringing people into the same room (in person or virtually), bringing them all up to the same level of geospatial knowledge, and encouraging them to talk and share their ideas and expertise. This is true of state C-Level executives who need to understand the robust GIS database that helps run their state, as well as engineers, planners, biologists, PSAP GIS staff, and others at all levels who need to access spatial data.

‘The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.’
— Henry Ford, Founder, Ford Motor Company

  • Help your GIS teams add tools to their toolbelts to help them be more efficient and more accurate with their data wrangling such as FME®, Model Builder®, and Python for ArcGIS®
