Geodesy is the science GIS is based on.  If you need to come up to speed fast, and need to understand what could cause very expensive mistakes, you might want to take this course.

A major effort was made to prepare material that balances methods and proper technical terms. The emphasis is to cover critical knowledge that was obtained (1) academically and (2) practically over forty years of consulting work.

This material is packaged into fifteen (15) sessions that can be given as remote sessions, or purchased as pre-recorded sessions.  Each session is about one hour long.
