The program is based on training courses developed jointly by Vancouver Island University.

The program is designed for postgraduate education in the field of land management, urban planning, cartography, geosciences and geoinformatics.

he training takes place remotely, which does not require a personal presence of the listener. Obtaining tasks and controlling knowledge takes place using the Moodle distance learning platform and the GIS server, which provides access to learning resources and software in a 24/7 mode, so that each participant can select a schedule that is convenient for them.
