TerraSync Course Reviews

All resource/land managers would benefit from this ever advancing technology/tools

The course was great I learned a lot

This highly helped me with my job, which involves a lot of GPS projects and collection data

Very good job representing the diversity of the technology and just the right mix of a look under the hood vis push the button

Best government course ever!

Very good instructor. Repetitive when needed and not when not.

Made info very easy to understand

You all did a great job helping us out. We tested your patience/thanks to all of you I learned a lot.

This course also helped me understand more about data management, pathfinder office software, and other GPS related software

I had very little GPS/GIS experience at the beginning of the course. Just about all of the material covered will be applicable to my position.

This course was directly applicable to the job I have for this summer

It is an impressive tool, which has amazing possibilities. The instructors do a great job at being positive and upbeat. Good job folks.

Just what we needed for summer work. Start to finish.

Good job covering the subject and keeping it interesting

A tremendous amount of information – an even more tremendous effort by all instructors to convey the info in the time allowed. Thanks a ton!
