Coronavirus Update

In light of the expanding outbreak of coronavirus, and after careful consideration and consultation with local health authorities, Blue Marble has made the decision to postpone two upcoming Global Mapper training classes. This specifically impacts the classes scheduled for Brunswick, Maine and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The rescheduled dates for these classes are as follows:
Brunswick: May 26 - 28
Amsterdam: To Be Determined

Please note that all previously registered attendees are automatically registered for the corresponding rescheduled class.

Needless to say, the safety and wellbeing of our customers is our number one priority and we deeply regret any inconvenience that this postponement may cause. If you have any questions or need more information, email training@bluemarblegeo.com.


Whether you are a GIS professional or just starting a career that requires the use of GIS software, Blue Marble's official public and instructor-led training classes offer software users the opportunity to expand their GIS knowledge. For detailed information on the class content, see the agenda link below.
