GIS Fundamental Workshop Series

The popular GIS Fundamentals Workshop Series are back!! In 2020, we had more than 1,388 Clemson students, faculty, and staff attend these workshops.

These weekly online workshops will provide experience with a variety of GIS concepts, software, and expertise and are designed to help students acquire GIS skills that are in demand for research and the job market. The workshops are free and open to all Clemson students, faculty, and staff. Participants can attend one, several, or all workshops in the series with the possibility of earning a CCGT Certificate of Attendance.

In these challenging times, we strive to make sure Clemson students get the most out of their time at Clemson. Our team is excited by all the growing interest in GIS across the campus. So we will hold these sessions synchronously at a time that was voted as the most popular by the students and faculty so that we can accommodate as many people as possible:  Tuesdays, 9 am to 12 pm
