First winner in Competition to win ArcGIS for Desktop Training Day has been drawn!

Yesterday, Jack de Lange, the Special Projects Officer of the Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA), kindly agreed to draw the first winner in our Competition to win PolyGeo Training in ArcGIS for Desktop.

The competition continues through December until 15 January 2014 with up to 9 more draws so, if you have not already, please enter ASAP!  You just need to check four multiple choice boxes.

To conduct the draw Jack was:

  1.  Provided with a numbered list of 24 individuals representing the first 20 Australian organisations (plus one Canadian) to respond to the ArcGIS for Desktop Training Survey 2013
  2. Asked to satisfy himself, by performing as many trials as he wanted, that a True Random Number Generator at RANDOM.ORG set to a range of 1-24 was indeed generating random numbers in that range
  3. Asked to announce to me when he wanted the next number generated to be the winner

The winning number was 9, which made Stephen Trent of Queensland’s Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) the winner.  Stephen’s photograph appears below shortly after receiving his voucher for an ArcGIS for Desktop Training Day valued at $590 (including GST).
