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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that enough seats are available.
