GIS247 - About Us

GIS247 is an initiative by Sological Solutions, available worldwide.

Sological Solutions started to provide training, consultancy and data services to the GIS industry in January 1997. We were the first company to offer independent GIS training in the UK, initially in Esri products. Through this success we quickly expanded to provide training in MapInfo Professional and QGIS and other related software.

Our training material is developed and maintained in-house by our specialist training team. Each member is highly qualified and has a number of years of experience of using GIS ‘in the real world’ in both consultant and technical roles in a range of application areas. Therefore our trainers have both the knowledge and experience to ensure that the content of our training is effective and addresses the real issues of getting the best out of any investment in the ArcGIS or MapInfo software.

We have successfully delivered a range of training from our own programme to a number of customers from sectors including local and central government, the marine environment, petroleum industry, utilities, engineering, rescue services, research institutions, environmental and conservation, transport and health. A number of these customers have also requested and received various bespoke training programmes to support their GIS users and also to expand the expertise of their GIS specialists. Therefore we are well placed to understand, develop and deliver training to accommodate specific requirements in different application areas and for different levels of user.

E-learning provides another way to make our comprehensive training programme and bespoke training available to a wider audience. Through GIS247 we are able to provide access to our courses and modules globally on a per company basis. It is a great way for GIS users to have flexible access to the type of training that they want when they need it.

Sological Solutions also provides a range of other GIS based services and products. Sological Solutions have developed and implemented a number of innovative products to enhance and improve proprietary GIS software. We were also the first to develop a specialist Data Enhancement Service to the UK’s GIS data users. This revolutionised the usability of key datasets and supported the efficient creation of land and property units, land use identification and land contamination categorisation. Our expertise and experience also allows us to provide consultancy services on a range of GIS related areas. This ranges from recruitment to GIS implementation and management on a company basis to one-to-one support in using GIS in research projects.

Some Comments about our Face to Face Sological Training

'As always an excellent training course - well delivered and extremely informative - its going to be very useful.' Natural England

'In the public sector we are under pressure to provide customers with more and more complex mapping and interpretation of statistics. Attending training courses at Sological has allowed us to make use of a large range of GIS techniques, as well as to tackle challenging features that are introduced by software upgrades. We have always found the course content comprehensive, and course materials ensure the skills learnt can be exercised when back in the office.' DEFRA

'I just wanted to pass on my thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable and well-pitched programme.' North West Leicestershire District Council
