We're trying to get the word out regarding a couple of upcoming GIS mapping
workshops in Atlanta. The workshops are geared toward beginners who would
like to map demographic information for Georgia communities. Please pass
this information onto anyone that may be interested. The workshops are
great for Government Agencies, Public Health, Academic Institutions,
Non-Profit Organizations, etc.
