Online Datamine/Discover Webinars for Geologists

With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the way we live and work, many people now shifting to working remotely to prevent further spread of the virus. GeoGRAFX will once again offer a series of webinars that focus on the MapInfo/Discover/Discover 3D platform. The webinars are short – usually one to two hours in duration and cover a specific topic related to the MapInfo/Discover/Discover 3D platform.

The webinar series allows people who have participated in previous training sessions to keep up to date with current changes without the expense of retaking the courses, and purchase only the specific sessions they need. Each Webinar is based on one of the chapters in the training manuals and contains not only the video as well as the detailed course manual, example datasets, and utilities used in the course.

To support our clients and the geology community, webinars for previous versions of MapInfo/Discover training are available available online at no charge. We will initiate a series of webinars for the current version of MapInfo/Discover and those will be available for a nominal fee. Sign up for our newsletter below to receive notices of upcoming webinars.

Course enrollment for upcoming webinars is limited and registration is required. Additional dates and courses will be added on an on-going basis. You will receive a confirmation of your enrollment. Participants will receive a copy of the webinar and course material. Unless noted, webinars will be conducted in English.
