their results in a hard-copy map.


pdf> Using AutoCAD data in ArcGIS - Nov 15-16th


With the ever increasing need for design and GIS professionals to share
data, it is critical that GIS users understand and are able to make use
of data created with Autodesk's AutoCAD(r) Software.  Using AutoCAD Data
in ArcGIS is a two day class that explains the dwg format and how to
integrate them into standard ESRI data formats such as shapefiles and
geodatabases. This class was developed by Keck & Wood based on our many
years of experience having to share data between our engineers and our
GIS professionals.

pdf> Autodesk Map 3D Fundamentals - June 18-20


This three-day course introduces participants to Autodesk Map 3D(tm) and
provides the foundation for becoming a successful user. Participants
learn how to use the basic GIS functions found in Autodesk Map 3D such

Some Student Feedback:

"Great material that followed up with Intro to GIS I. All the material
was relevant to what I needed to know. Thanks ESRI!!  Mr. Corbin, the
instructor, was very knowledgeable about the software and the procedures
that were entailed to use it. Tripp was excellent in his presentation!!"

Matt Davis - GIS Tech - City of Oxford, MS - Introduction to ArcGIS II -


"The course very organized. The exercises were very helpful for me
throughout the class. I wanted to learn how do bridge the gap between
AutoCAD data and ArcGIS GIS data, and I feel this course did that. This
class will prove helpful in my day to day GIS work, since we are
converting over to ArcGIS right now.  I would recommend this class to
everyone in the GIS field that has anything to do with any form of
AutoCAD data." - David Mckee - GIS Specialist - Dawson County, GA -
Using AutoCAD Data in ArcGIS - 01/17/2007


"We here at Glynn County GIS wish to express our thanks to Keck & Wood
for the excellent job that you have done for us in training and support.
The class that you taught for the combined Glynn County and Camden
County personnel was one of the best I have attended. We were all very
impressed with your company's program and your knowledge and teaching
abilities. We all came away feeling very confident in using the ArcInfo
software." - Dianne Wilson - Assistant GIS Director - Glynn County, GA -
Introduction to ArcGIS II and Custom on-site training - 04/06/2007


"Recently a number of staff (including myself) attended the ArcGIS 9.2 I
& II training events hosted by Tripp Corbin of Keck & Wood.  In a
nutshell...the training was excellent!  Tripp's broad knowledge and
experience in surveying and engineering really helped tie in key
functionality of the 9.2 tools with our planning and engineering
functions.  Tripp's teaching style and knowledge also prompted us to
take his "Using AutoCAD Data in ArcGIS" class.  This class was also
extremely informative and bridged some of the long standing gaps between
CAD and GIS that we have struggled with for years."- Ryan Fernandes" -

ArcGIS I & II and Using AutoCAD data in ArcGIS - 05/2007
