Geographic Information Systems at Yale: The Yale GIS Workshops

Geographic Information Systems at Yale University encompasses a range of spatial applications and services. GIS is used by many disciplines at Yale University.

Virtual GIS Training

Yale members have the option to join the Esri e-Learning platform to access hundreds of GIS virtual training at no cost.

If you were familiar with access codes for virtual courses, starting August 15, 2016 those codes are no longer necessary. Instead, you need to:

  1. Access and setup, if you have not done so, your Yale University ArcGIS Online Account.
  2. Request to the GIS Team to connect your account to the Esri e-Learning
  3. You will receive an invitation from Esri. It is important that you
    • Click on the  Get Started  icon on their e-mail
    • Use your Yale Net ID to login
  4. Once you get access to the Esri e-Learning platform, you may browse their course catalog

Be aware that many instructor-led training are not included as a no-cost option with the site license. However, you may review hundreds of virtual training that are available at no cost for Yale members.
