The University of Florida IFAS Extension, Florida Sea Grant, and Golder Associates Inc. invite you to register for this premier 3.5-day intensive training on ArcGIS 10.6, a powerful tool for managing natural resources and guiding growth and development processes.

You will be introduced to ArcGIS Desktop, the primary product used by professionals to compile, analyze, and manage geographic information. You will learn the most commonly used GIS skills in the industry today by completing "real-world" exercises that will build your confidence using GIS, increase your awareness about GIS data sources, and help you explore GIS tools to enhance your program and research projects.
