I’m a huge fan off online training or any kind of professional development for that matter. Online delivery of educational material is convenient, affordable, and can be entertaining as well as informative. The following are a few opportunities that the Geo professional might wish to take advantage of in the near future:
Esri will host the free live training seminar Making and Sharing Maps with ArcGIS Online on May 12, 2011
From Esri… During the seminar, you will learn how to create your own map and then share it with the public or your own private group. You will also find out how to access, at no cost, geographic resources such as web maps, map services, applications, and layer/map packages. The presenter will demonstrate how to add features to your maps and create custom pop-up windows and notes to help your map tell a story. See Details HERE
