Dear Colleagues,

First, apologies if you have received this invitation more than once. 

I'm writing to invite you to participate in a survey about your needs and interests related to training in mapping technology such as GPS, geographic information systems, web-based mapping technologies, remote sensing technologies, etc.. The Maine Geospatial Institute at the University of Maine System is conducting this survey of people (18 or older) who work in fields in which mapping software and other geospatial technologies are commonly used or may be useful. We are also interested in hearing from people who are interested in adding mapping skills to their resumes. Through this research we hope to build new cutting-edge, affordable and accessible professional development opportunities. 

We need to hear from you! 

The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. You may receive up to three reminders to participate. This study is confidential, and participation is voluntary.

Please forward this message to your co-workers, email lists and social networks!

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Tora Johnson at [log in to unmask] or (207) 255-1214. To learn more about the Maine Geospatial Institute, please visit

Thanks in advance for your participation.
