Blue Marble Offers Free Global Mapper Training and User Certification in 2015 with Re-vamped Training Program

Hallowell, Maine - February 25, 2015 - Blue Marble Geographics ( is pleased to announce several new training programs being offered in 2015. The new programs include a Software Certification Program delivered via Public and On-site Training sessions, a Self-Training Program and Free Training. Blue Marble's geospatial data manipulation, visualization and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organizations.

Blue Marble Geographics has been offering top quality training on a variety of topics for over 10 years. The new and improved training programs for 2015 are a direct result of customer feedback and extensive product feature expansion over the last three years. Individuals will have the opportunity to leverage hands-on training and tutorials to learn at their own pace as well as the ability to request customized training that can be delivered in a classroom-based session or online. Training topics include three classes on Global Mapper, and one each on Applied Geodesy, The Geographic Calculator, and the Blue Marble Developer Tool Kits.

The Public Training Instructor-led Program is being offered at several venues across North America. This year's program features a free full day of introduction to Global Mapper with no further obligation. If users are interested in more in-depth training they can attend the two advanced days and even become certified on the software. There is a new 'Day 2' class for advanced data processing and a new third day for Lidar, 3D modeling and Terrain Analysis. The Blue Marble Training Certificate Program recognizes the heightened level of proficiency gained from in-depth training and is being introduced at the repeated request of current customers. Certification is offered for Global Mapper and The Geographic Calculator, individuals who successfully complete the required training will be recognized as a certified user.

There is also a free Self-Training Program option available for Global Mapper and this is a great way to prepare for the more in-depth Public Training Certification Program or to supplement already existing knowledge.

"We are very excited to be offering a variety of learning opportunities for users" stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. "The free training class will ensure that everyone who has invested in Global Mapper can quickly see a return on that investment. It also allows prospective users to assess the capability of the software before deciding to purchase."
