University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension has a robust program on geospatial technologies that includes training and technology assistance (http://gisworkshops.org).  Several workshops are offered each month in New Hampshire and occasionally in other New England states (http://extension.unh.edu/GISGPS/GISTrain.htm).  Traning materials are available on-line covering three levels: the basics of GIS and GPS; fundamentals for people who want to become capable GIS and GPS users; and advanced topics (http://extension.unh.edu/GISGPS/Manuals.htm).  Recently updated training manuals include:

Making Maps the Google Way – A basic course that includes step-by-step exercises on how to use Google Earth 5 to make custom maps and Google Maps to make and share custom maps. (http://extension.unh.edu/GISGPS/GISINFO.cfm?crs=18)

Google Puts the “G” in GPS – A basic course that includes step-by-step exercises on how to use Google and GPS.

Making Maps the Google Way: Reloaded – An intermediate course that includes step-by-step exercises on how to convert KML to SHP files (and vice versa), and an intro on the use of a website to conduct analysis with KML. (http://extension.unh.edu/GISGPS/GISINFO.cfm?crs=27)

The New Hampshire program is a partner of the National Geospatial Technology Extension Network (http://www.geospatialextension.org/).  Twitter (http://twitter.com/gisworkshops) and Facebook (http://facebook.com/gisworkshops) sites provide updated information about the workshops.  For more information about the UNH Geospatial Technologies program, contact Shane Bradt (shane.bradt@unh.edu).
