Global Mapper 14.2 Webinars

Accessible GIS for Municipal or Local Government

Free Webinar

Date/Time: July 25, 2013 at 11:00 am (EDT)

Small towns and local government departments have long recognized the benefits of a well-organized Geographic Information System however for many, GIS technology is often considered beyond their reach. Burdened by financial constraints and limited technical resources, many municipalities are resigned to forego the implementation of a GIS or to outsource this aspect of their operations, which ultimately costs more and delivers less. For a fraction of the cost of traditional GIS software, Global Mapper provides the easy-to-use tools that enable municipalities of every size to be self-sufficient in the management of their GIS data and through increased efficiency, to see a rapid return on investment.

In the latest of our monthly webinar series, we will investigate how Global Mapper can be employed in the field of local government GIS management. Topics will include:
• Finding and importing pre-existing datasets, including imagery and elevation data
• Creating and managing a property or parcel dataset
• Using field-collected data to create spatial data layers, such as public works assets
• Creating buffers around environmentally sensitive areas to help enforce building regulations
• Sharing maps and pertinent data layers with constituents

Registration is now open and we look forward to you joining us for this free one-hour webinar.

Note: On the registration page, there is a "Show in my Time Zone" link next to the date and time that will allow you to see what time the webinar will take place in your own time zone.
