Interpretive Summary: This paper uses the AgroAtlas project (www.agroatlas.ru) as a case study to illustrate how international projects can be an important resource to help train teachers and scientists in emerging technology including geographic information systems (GIS) software. The paper discusses a series of 10- day training courses that were conducted at St. Petersburg State University and other academic institutes throughout Russia that provided an introduction to using GIS tools to solve conservation and agricultural problems. The 10 day course (free of charge) and travel scholarships were provided through a grant by the USDA, ARS Office of International Research Programs.
