This workshop covers the basics of GIS for the novice by exploring Google Earth and ArcGIS Desktop. You will learn the ArcMap and ArcCatalog interfaces as well as how to classify a map and make a professional map layout.
Geoprocessing tools, projections, and other spatial query tools will be examined along with information fundamentals such as querying, joining, and relating to allow you to create and modify tabular data.
After learning more about geodatabases, this workshop will cover more complex spatial processing tools such as digitizing, georeferencing, spatial adjustment, and raster data manipulation.
In addition to discovering the fundamentals of geocoding, students will learn advanced data manipulation skills including annotation and labeling, hyperlinking, and other advanced attribute tricks.
The ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension is the focus of this workshop. Students will learn the basics on how to deal with DEM's and create slopes and contours. More advanced analysis on density mapping, site suitability analysis and least cost path modeling are also taught.
Using the ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension, the student will learn how to create 3D community visualizations, construct terrain modeling, and build a 3D model of a building. All of this will culminate in learning how to produce animated movies of the 3D environment.
The field of remote sensing is introduced focusing on basic multispectral analysis and step-by-step image analysis exercises. Exercises include image classification, rule based feature extraction, and image difference change detection.
This workshop focuses on obtaining useful & accurate data with Trimble GeoXt/XH GPS units, Pathfinder Office, and Terrasync. Skills covered include the basics of accurate GPS data collection, the application of real-time & post processed differential correction techniques, & creation of custom data dictionaries.
Guided online instruction and on-site workshops are available for groups of eight or more upon request.
