Blue Marble Global Mapper & LiDAR module July training @ Webinar
Jul 7 @ 3:40 am – Jul 15 @ 4:40 am

Blue Marble is pleased to offer both new and experienced users of Global Mapper the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the software and the LiDAR Module by attending an instructor-led, web-based training program.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Blue Marble has made the difficult decision to indefinitely postpone all face-to-face classroom-based training classes. The health and safety of our clients and staff remain our top priority.

For this reason, we are very excited to be able to offer these training sessions online, so everyone can participate from a safe distance. Blue Marble instructors have been effectively using the GoToWebinar platform to deliver online training for many years. The online approach to training allows you to learn the software from the comfort of your home or office and provides an opportunity for us to leverage multiple instructors so real-time help will be readily available during and after the class.

The course content will be delivered over several days, during which attendees will have an opportunity to see the instructor’s screen, follow written workflows in the accompanying training manual, and ask questions as needed.

The intensive twelve hour Global Mapper portion of the program introduces all of the major components of Global Mapper using simulated real-world scenarios and workflows. The agenda includes digitizing and vector editing, advanced attribute management, thematic mapping, raster processing, terrain analysis, and much more. To make best use of the available time, the core functionality of the software, such as file management, interface navigation, tool selection, etc., will not be covered in detail however introductory educational materials will be distributed to all attendees before the class.

The six hour LiDAR Module training will explore all aspects of LiDAR processing from initial data quality assurance to 3D analysis. The class will introduce the structure and characteristics of LiDAR data before following a series of workflows that demonstrates the point cloud visualization, editing, and analysis capabilities of the software.

All attendees who successfully complete both the Global Mapper and LiDAR Module training classes (18 hours of training) will be issued an official certificate of completion and will be recognized as Certified Global Mapper users.

Training Agendas

Requirements for Training

The instruction technique is hands-on so each attendee must have a Windows-based laptop computer with the latest build of Global Mapper installed. If necessary, a temporary license file will be provided to enable all of the functionality of the software for the duration of the classes. All data used during the program will be provided via FTP prior to the classes.

As a prerequisite for attending the LiDAR Module class, attendees must have an understanding of the basic principles of GIS and preferably experience with Global Mapper. Attendees who are new to Global Mapper are strongly encouraged to sign up for the Global Mapper portion of the program.

Multiple Attendee Registrations

If you intend to register five or more attendees from your company or organization for the class, please email training@bluemarblegeo.com to confirm that enough seats are available.

BEYOND THE 2026 AGENDA

The presentation will focus on a major initiative called the 2030 Space and Spatial Industry Growth Roadmap. The Government has set three key objectives for the space industry by 2030; 20,000 new jobs, $12B additional contribution to GDP and an extra one billion dollars into the investment pipeline. The combination of space and spatial working together will make a great contribution to meeting these targets. The space industry sets up critical elements of the communications supply chains (satcoms) together with content (GNSS and EO). The spatial industry provides the vast bulk of the data infrastructure, value-added content and analytics, and the ‘last yard’ delivery channels to customers. Getting this ecosystem right creates a premium competitive advantage for Australia and greatly strengthens our sovereignty and security. The presentation will discuss the next steps in the development of the roadmap; the development of a white paper which sets out the critical issues, the creation of an ecosystem map will help identify key areas for investment, and a risk analysis that will set out Australia’s critical dependence on space based assets and the steps we can take as a nation to improve our resilience, and sovereignty over, these assets. It will also provide an update on the latest developments of the 2026 Spatial Industry Transformation and Growth Agenda and how this initiative will contribute to the roadmap.

Mobility 2020 Sydney - VIRTUAL CONFERENCE @ Virtual Conference

MaaS offers the potential to drastically improve customer choices, reduce travel costs, increase network capacity and transport sustainability while improving social and environmental outcomes.

From a concept that excited the industry to consider how we might rethink transport to a real world offering that is providing a new way to plan, book and pay for transport.

Mobility 2020 will be a VIRTUAL CONFERENCE.

Australia’s leaders in ITS Mobility and MaaS will bring together experts from industry, government and academia to learn and share ideas about the impact of COVID-19 on our industry and communities. Transportation, freight and logistics, and the transport and technology sector widely have been both massively impacted and deliver essential services. How are organisations and individuals adapting and learning through this crisis?

We will also look at behavioural change, how people are likely to work and study post the covid pandemic, what will be the impact on fare revenue and fare sharing, what are the new sets of challenges MaaS is trying to solve. Join online as key organisations will share covid success stories and how they are pivoting from the pandemic experience.

Now more than ever it is important to stay connected with industry, government and academia to maintain vital connections during a time where our industry is both working at the front lines and continuing to deliver on their existing important roles. Sharing information about what industry is doing and how we are preparing for the future has never been more important.

Key Dates

Wednesday 2 – Thursday 3 September 2020: Virtual sessions, keynote speaker interviews, presentations and panel discussions, live interactive Q&A sessions, polls and surveys.

Program

Full program and speaker line-up to be announced.

Sessions will be broken down and spread over 2 days – allowing you time to connect interact with attendees and presenters via the event platform.

Speakers

We are working with a group of industry experts to design a program that is both substantive and exciting, if you are interested to be a speaker or contribute to an interactive panel discussion, you are encouraged to email your expression of interest to ITS Australia and include:

  • Proposed Speaker: Name, Job Title, Organisation
