MapInfo Data Creation Training - MI5
The Data Creation course is designed to develop
the user's knowledge of MapInfo Professional to encompass the skills
and knowledge required for the specific task of data capture. The intention
is to give the student the information required to capture geographic
data from a variety of sources efficiently, effectively and accurately.
The course is aimed specifically at users who will be involved in the
capturing, storing and retrieving of data.
Whilst attendance on the MapInfo Foundation course (MI2) is useful it
is by no means required. However a working knowledge of MapInfo Professional
is fundamental (e.g. How to open and close files, dealing with multiple
windows, layer control etc)
Throughout the course we use examples from realistic business cases,
and there is an opportunity at the end of the course for students to
discuss the specifics of their business case with the trainer.
The course covers all aspects of data capture including drawing objects,
completing attribute information and many hints and tricks on how to
draw faster and more accurately all types of map objects. The course
also looks at data cleansing and some of the tools included in MapInfo
to ensure the best possible results from your data.
Like all of CDR's training courses the Data
Creation course is fully "hands on" with each delegate using
a dedicated PC with the latest software versions installed. Comprehensive
course notes are issued to each delegate at the start of the course
for no extra cost.
Cost: Please contact us for the cost of this course.
