Shameless self-promotion and a geodatabase online class

I’m an instructor in the UC San Diego Extension Certificate of Completion GIS program, and the third class in our series is starting up on 3/29/11 and it’s entirely online…so if you are looking for an introduction into geodatabases and if you have some (even limited) GIS experience but need some structure to get you to sit down and just do it, this might just the ticket!  The description of the course online is not quite what we do – rather it is more geodatabases and data sources.  The shameless self-promotion comes because I’m the instructor.  : )  http://extension.ucsd.edu/studyarea/index.cfm?vAction=singleCourse&vCourse=ECE-40247&vStudyAreaId=9
