GIS Workshop: Applied Geospatial Solutions in Natural Resources
Monday, May 22, 2017, 8:00 AM to Thursday, May 25, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
This is a hands-on, exercise-based GIS course that explores the range of functionality of ArcGIS; the course has been tailored to aptly benefit those working in conservation and natural resources, but may also broadly apply to professionals outside these fields. We will explore essential tools and techniques for creating, working with, visualizing, and managing geographic data. In particular, this course will provide you with experience using various GPS units and how to integrate GPS derived data into a GIS. Additionally, we will cover the fundamentals of map creation, template development, and sharing/dissemination of your map products. We will not exhaustively lecture or cover definitions and mundane GIS terms; we would rather focus on explaining “real-world” application of a GIS and provide you the opportunity to gain experience through exercises and mini-projects teaching/presentation (35%), hands-on exercises (50%), field and group exercises (10%), and discussion/application (5%).
