GIS TRAINING

We provide  GIS training tailored to your individual needs. The training can be given in either ArcView or QGIS. Ranging from “Zero to Hero” one day courses designed to familiarise you with GIS and the terminology used to advanced courses such as data visualisation and web map production. More recently we have been providing advice on effective data capture in the field and insuring spatial integrity.

GIS SUPPORT

We can provide support for all your on-going GIS projects whether you are struggling with some technical aspect or are going for a migration from ArcMAP to QGIS. For support calls we charge a minimum of one hour. Invoices will be sent at the end of each month. I generally aim to reply to support requests within 24 hours but if I am working out on site it may be longer.

GIS SERVICES

As well as the support and training I undertake bespoke GIS projects including:-

    • Developing work flows for accurate data capture, specialising in GPS to map workflows
      Data cleansing
      Production of map based promotional material
      Production of bespoke web based mapping applications using the leaflet API for websites

 

Testimonial

Lee spent a day teaching me the intricacies of QGIS and installing it on my computer. At the end of the day I found I could continue with my map-making without further assistance and I have continued to produce better and better maps since. He continues to provide support whenever needed. I cannot recommend Lee highly enough.
