GeoTalks Express


GeoTalks Express® webinars are free hour-long sessions focusing on particular aspects of Blue Marble Geographics’s GIS and geospatial software products.  The webinars are free and open to everyone, however, registration is required.

Upcoming Webinars:

Wed Nov 10, 2021 - 10:00 EST (15:00 UTC) - Global Mapper Pro Live User Review

Global Mapper Pro®, the latest addition to the family of Global Mapper programs, offers a suite of new professional tools accessible to GIS users at all levels. We asked three long-time users of Global Mapper to explore the depths of the application and join us for a live review of what they think of it! This unscripted webinar offers attendees an opportunity to hear honest feedback from fellow users.

Join us on Wednesday, November 10 at 10:00 am (EST) for a one-hour, unscripted conversation with Global Mapper users Bob Downie, Walter Nicolli, and Chuck Stein. Mike Childs, the original developer of Global Mapper; Patrick Cunningham, CEO of Blue Marble; and David McKittrick, Outreach and Training Manager, will also be joining the conversation.



Wed Nov 17, 2021 - 14:00 EST (19:00 UTC) - Conducting a suitability analysis for viticulture using Global Mapper

Suitability analysis is an assessment of the terrain and regional characteristics of an area to find locations that meet the criteria defined for a given purpose. This type of analysis is important when choosing a location for a new business, infrastructure, or crop cultivation. When scouting a new location for a vineyard, whether it be a backyard plot or a new commercial vineyard, the terrain characteristics, soil type, and general growing conditions need to be considered. While there are a seemingly infinite number of variables that can be considered when selecting a vineyard site, Global Mapper can be used to analyze terrain and other characteristics of the land for an initial suitability assessment. While the scenario demonstrated in this webinar assessed the suitability for viticulture, a suitability analysis for any agricultural product would likely begin with similar datasets and utilize the same tools in Global Mapper.
