Western Cape workshops fully booked!

Posted on February 21st, 2011 in General,Workshops by Alta

When we first announced our Western Cape  Google Earth & Maps workshops (taking place in Stellenbosch and Cape Town at the end of March), we worried that we wouldn’t fill all the spots, and thought that there was a good chance that all the attendees would come from one or two institutions.

We were pleasantly surprised.

Within ten days of making the announcement we found ourself with a waiting list, and with registrations from individuals from more than forty different organisations, mostly based locally.  On the organising end we were also exceedingly lucky, managing to secure venues to host the workshops in collaboration with the Universities of Cape Town and Stellenbosch.  Our sincerest thanks to the EGS department at UCT and the Conservation Ecology & Entomology department at the University of Stellenbosch for opening their facilities and enabling us to keep these workshops free of charge!

We can’t wait to meet the people who are behind the many great projects and institutions that task themselves with looking after the “Fairest cape in the circumference of the world” (and from further afield) and we are looking forward to helping you visualise and communicate your efforts, problems and ideas.

If you’ve missed the boat, but are still very interested in the workshops, add yourself to the waiting list.  Or if you’re interested in workshops in other areas or at later dates,  please contact us directly.

To get you in the mood, have a look at a few ot the case studies that came out of last years’ workshop, or visit the Google Earth Outreach Showcase to see some examples of how people have used Google Earth & Maps to visaulise important information globally.

We look forward to seeing you in March and April!
