Announcing a Google Geo workshop in Johannesburg

Posted on September 26th, 2011 in General,Workshops by Alta

After our workshops in the Western Cape and Arusha earlier this year, many conservation organisations and individuals asked us to bring our Google Geo tool workshops to more areas.  So today we’re very excited to announce that we will be running two sets of workshops to Johannesburg in November, this time in collaboration with the Endangered Wildlife Trust.

To ensure that we can accommodate as many conservation scientists, managers, communicators and other practitioners, we will run two sets of workshops, one from the 14th to the 16th and the second from the 17th to the 19thof November. Not a GIS expert or tech wiz? No problem! All you need is a laptop, willingness to learn and a need to visualise your work.

The three day workshops will run from the EWT head offices in Modderfontein, Johannesburg and will focus on using Google’s mapping technology and it’s applications in conservation. We will also introduce you to MAPA’s searchable map of African conservation and show you how to use it for your benefit. The workshop will be  very practical and interactive and, on the third day, participants will have the opportunity to design and work on their own maps and visualisations.

Interested? Then head over to our workshop site to get your application in and find out more about the topics that we’ll be covering in the trainings. Hurry – applications close on the 14th of October!
