Hi, volunteer: Happy to note a good discussion. I can help in seeing the draft of workshops/Labs that deal with Vector-GIS and GIS that focuses on Geoscience. Can help in advising where necessary, to tune the material such that those multitudes not attending the event can equally use the material with ease.
