This was incredible. I have essentially no knowledge of the programs (other than I'd heard about ArcMap) & I often feel like I am lost in introductory program workshops if it is not very small and also hands on. This was incredible. Many resources that I can access and utilize whether I do mapping work or not. I truly hope to begin to learn to incorporate this in to our work. I wish that there were some small weekly workshops that would teach hands on over the course of 4-6 weeks or something. But, for an intro orientation workshop - I love it and am so glad that I came!
