  • SCSI are delighted to partner with Maynooth University, TU Dublin, Ordnance Survey Ireland and Esri Ireland on the delivery of this training workshop, which will focus on applications of interest for Surveyors encompassing Multispectral and Synthetic Aperture RADAR with examples for creating land cover maps, agriculture and flood mapping. This day long workshop is available at no cost to researchers, Chartered Surveyors and related professionals who use spatial and/or GIS data either in their day-to-day work or in their studies.

    Eight hours CPD will be awarded to SCSI Members who complete the full day workshop. The workshop is also open to non-embers to attend. On registration, your name and email address will be provided to the 5*S team at Maynooth University for access to all workshop materials.

    In return for attending the full day workshop, we ask that all attendees will commit to volunteering as a GeoMentor and presenting an online workshop to a school and also complete a short Tusla ‘Children First’ webinar.

    Training and materials will be provided to all GeoMentors.
