We teach GIS

Looking for a reliable GIS Training Course provider? Then you have found the right place.

In a complex world of acronyms, fast changing software and vast amounts of available open data, it can be a daunting process. We provide you with the most up-to-date GIS training courses, customising them to suit your circumstances.

All of our courses:

● Use FREE OpenSource Software
● Use OpenDatasets
● Most require little or no knowledge to start
● Use real-life exercises which can be applied to field of study or workplace
● Encourage adding the software to students own laptops (and mouse) to use before, during & after the course

We also offer:

● One-to-one tuition
● Online tuition (only available for some courses), please enquire

Our courses are workshop-based with the focus on a practical hands-on approach. We are members of the Royal Geographic Society (with IBG) and the British Cartographic Society (BCS).

We love sharing what GIS can do!

ADRC-E – University of Southampton

ADRC-E has organised several courses with Clear Mapping Co and we have found the service to be of a consistently high standard. The courses have been popular and successful with very good feedback from our delegates about both the quality of the course and the presenters who are able to convey their knowledge in a clear and approachable manner. I would not hesitate to either recommend a Clear Mapping Co. course or work with them again.
