Coastal and Marine GIS Training

Course overview

Delivered by ABPmer’s experienced GIS consultants and GeoData’s GIS trainers, this course uses case studies and hands-on activities to show how marine and coastal datasets can be used to support decision making.

Using QGIS v3.x, the course is structured around modules that cover various GIS concepts and techniques. As well as introducing marine data and GIS, the course considers common problems faced when mapping coastal and offshore environments. There is also an opportunity to discuss specific spatial data issues with our specialists.

The course is validated under the Association for Geographic Information CPD scheme and the GIS Certification Institute GIS Professional (GISP) Award. GeoData is a fully accredited RGS-IBG CPD Provider.
