*Prior to arrival:

  • Download Avenza Maps onto your smartphone or tablet – Note – it is acceptable to utilize the free version of Avenza Maps for training purposes only, but, commercial use requires an Avenza Maps Pro subscription - $129.00 per year. Free version users will not have the use of all functions that will be demonstrated at the workshop

  • Avenza Maps has excellent webinars and YouTube videos that walk users through the functions. For more information, see: https://www.avenzamaps.com/help/tutorials/ . It is highly recommended that you watch some of the basic “how to” videos and familiarize yourself with the functions – be sure to select those made for your device – either iOS (Apple) or Android. We will not go over the basics of installing Avenza Maps or other apps on your device at the training. You will get much more out of the workshop day and field session if you do this homework.
