Software Training

Pelican GeoGraphics provides training courses in MapInfo Professional and Encom Discover, tailored to the mineral exploration user.

The training classes are run over either 2 or 3 days, depending on your MapInfo knowledge, and are run in the comfort of your own offices. With a maximum of 5 students per class, you will receive all the attention you need to rapidly quickly become a proficient user.

Courses are designed to give you all the information you need to work effectively and efficiently with the MapInfo-Discover combination.

If required, Pelican GeoGraphics can customise the course to use your own corporate data sets, with which the staff will be more familiar. For further information contact Caroline Hilton at Pelican GeoGraphics.
