What a fantastic course. Structure was efficient and the presentation was outstanding. The knowledge Ujaval passed on was exceptional and will help me work more proficiently and more importantly with confidence. Thank you very much Ujaval.

Russell Brack, UK

Excellent modern introduction to Spatial Data Analytics. First of its Kind. Marries GIS and Data Science into a format which stresses equally on visualization and analyses. The datasets and techniques being used are innovative and seldom explored.

Althaf S, National Institute of Technology Calicut, India

Excellent training! The course material is well prepared and Ujaval is an amazing teacher! I learned a lot!

Martin Enzner, Freelancer, Germany

I am quite satisfied with the training approach of Ujaval, he is well organized in his sessions and his training material and notes are easy to understand and also practice. I am much more confident in handling QGIS after attending Ujaval’s training! All the best Ujaval and a Big Thank You!!!

Gurudatta Kannambadi, Aaron GSD, India

You always learn more than the course title suggest. Ujaval is always happy to share his knowledge of spatial science and associated software and websites.

The Spatial Data Visualization and Analytics course has really opened my mind to how intelligent QGIS actually is and how much it can do beyond just visualization. Ujaval has painstakingly put the course material together, which makes the course very effective!

Bharti Dharapuram, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, India

This course was very useful for the work I do. I learnt a lot of new tools and a more effective way of working with QGIS.

Sharadini Rath, Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, India

Brilliant presentation and delivery from instructor. His knowledge of GIS is impeccable, so is his composure. I learnt a lot from the course to add up to my GIS skill-sets especially and spatial data analysis.
