New One-Day Courses
Eagle-eyed customers may have noticed recent changes to our training course names and schedule.
All public courses are now one-day's duration, to make it easier for people to get the necessary release from the office. The change also affords greater flexibility in terms of how you learn GIS - some customers prefer to learn a bit at a time, with the opportunity to consolidate what they've learned before moving onto more advanced topics, whereas others want to cover everything in one go (maybe due to the need to travel and stay overnight) .
Our new one-day courses are scheduled to enable either of these approaches. The Beginners and Intermediate courses will always be on consecutive days, so trainees can choose whether to do the two days back-to-back, or whether to leave a month or so in between.

Mad About Maps
Have you seen our new MapMad blog?
We've been running it for a couple of months and have achieved a pretty good following. We use it to share our observations, thoughts and tips on everything and anything mapping and GIS related.
With regular new stories it is sure to be of interest for anyone who shares our passion for mapping. Hopefully it will stimulate and amuse in equal measures.
You can find it at www.mapmad.co.uk and there is the capability to comment on our stories with your own opinion.
We'd also be pleased to consider the publication of guest blogs if you feel that you have something you'd like to share with the community. www.mapmad.co.uk

New Training Courses and Prices!
We all face challenging times, with increasing pressures to get "more for less" from employees and suppliers alike.
So investment in staff is more important than ever. For people to make the right decisions, they need the best tools, the most accurate information and the appropriate skills.
And one thing that has not changed is the central importance of geographic analysis to organisations in all sorts of sectors.
Our GIS training courses continue to be praised for their relevance and value, and they're now even better value with the recent price reductions. Two-day courses are now only £495, one-day courses £300 (both ex VAT), with reductions for multiple places, charities and self-funding individuals.
We've just launched our new ArcView v10 coures at Introduction and Advanced levels,which are already proving very popular.
Full details can be found on our training pages.
We hope to see you soon!

Salford GIS Help Crime Fighters
We have recently run a series of successful MapInfo training courses for Lancashire Constabulary. The courses were broken down in to Intermediate and Advanced levels, based around their data, and held on-site at their Headquarters in Hutton, Lancashire.
During this time we trained over 40 staff and analysts.
Scott Keay, Senior Intelligence Analyst said, “Salford GIS provided an excellent and very professional service. All the trainees remarked about having their high expectations met, while the trainer was extremely knowledgeable and always had an answer to any query or question anyone in the group raised”.

Making Free Data Priceless
There is an old adage which states, 'If it's free then it's not worth having!'. In April 2010 the Ordnance Survey have set out to prove that this advice is a very long way removed from the truth.
Since earlier this month a number of high profile and high value data sets which did cost thousands, if not tens of thousands of pounds, have been made available for free public download. And there are more to follow in May.
Couple this with the increasing sophistication of Open Source desktop mapping software, and high powered, data rich, analytical GIS is now within the grasp of even the smallest organisation on the tightest budget.
Salford GIS can help steer both experienced GIS users and organisations with no previous experience, who want to understand how to make better use of free data, not only that from the Ordnance Survey, but also a myriad of other free data sets available on the internet.
Give us a call on 0161 278 2440 to see how we can make 'free' become priceless.
