I just released a new course called “Introduction to Web Programming for GIS Applications” on Udemy. I would like to offer the members of SoCalGIS 50% off ($50 for 96 lectures covering 13 hours) using the following link.
This course is intended to be the fouindation for further courses I am developing on Client side GIS applications, Server side GIS applications, and Mobile application development.
Non-profits are eligible for further discounts. Just email me at email@example.com and tell me how you use GIS to make the world a better place.

Greetings from the University of Kentucky Department of Geography!
Are you interested in web mapping? Check out the online Graduate Certificate in Digital Mapping program at the University of Kentucky – we can help take your GIS career to the next level. While there are a full range of courses, we recommend experienced GIS professionals begin with MAP 672 – Programming for Web Mapping.
The California Department of Conservation (DOC) unveiled a new geospatial data and map website, DOC Maps, to provide easy access to its collection of GIS managed spatial data. DOC has GIS managed data about geology, seismic hazards, mineral resources, mining, agriculture, land use, oil, gas, and geothermal energy.
Mark your calendars for our next SoCalGIS meeting on April 7th. It will be hosted by Rio Hondo College GIS in Whittier. The meeting time is 10am to 12:30pm and parking info will follow soon, as well as an agenda. Expect a drone demo and demo of data processing tools!
More info soon. Stay tuned!
If you are a community college student in Geography that plans on transferring to California State University Northridge (or you just did), here’s a deal you should not pass up.
