Free Introduction and Intermediate GIS Training classes for SCAG members

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is making training available to its members, which include cities and the County.


My recommendation is to look at the training dates held at SCAG, which is in downtown LA.

Here is the training sign-up link:
