Training Centre

Pixel Solutions Company brought together specialists with many years of experience in such areas as GIS, remote sensing, digital photogrammetry and related sciences. Each of us has dozens of successful projects  and many years of experience. We had united in a team of professionals who are happy to share with you their knowledge and experience. We invite you to visit our center.

Also we would like to hear your suggestions about courses conducted by us. If you have ideas, suggestions, proposals how to make our courses better etc. - Go to "supply" and express your thoughts. We will be very grateful for that.

We present a new integrated course which will help you to form your own GIS projects on the basis of satellite imagery. Conventionally course is divided into 2 categories:

  • Fundamentals and concepts of ERS using ENVI (2 days);
  • ArcGIS working course;

The cost of the course - 4500 UAH (including VAT) per person. Minimum group - 3 people. The course is conducted jointly with our partner, GIS Analyst Center.
