Webinars & Workshops

UCGIS hosts a series of webinars and online workshops as a service to our members and the larger GIScience community. Individuals from member institutions may always participate for free. Some of our events carry a fee for non-members, and that will be indicated on the registration form.  All sessions are recorded and are available for later viewing by registrants.

If you have questions about our series, would like to view a recording of an earlier session, or have a future topic or presenter to suggest, please contact Amy Rock (arock @ ucgis.org).
