GANS is looking for volunteers to teach geospatial skills at upcoming
professional development workshops!
We have opportunities available for those who are interested in teaching geospatial skills! Not only will you be helping other professionals learn; volunteering is one of the best ways to build contacts and strengthen networks. This is a chance to polish important skills such as time-management, public speaking, critical thinking, and problem solving. Most importantly, volunteering with GANS will help grow and further professionalize the geomatics sector.
Our sessions are well attended and highly rated. They generally take place from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm on a weekday, and are located at the Halifax Central Library as well as other locations across the province. Our workshops are increasingly delivered through webinars so they are more accessible.
Previous sessions have focused on open-source geospatial software, with the following information:
- Sources of free geospatial data
- Free software for geographic data manipulation and analysis
- Data collection and compilation
- Free software to aid web publishing
