This 5-day workshop is designed for anyone interested in learning a range of mapping technologies, then immediately applying their new skills. Participants learn to map natural resources and community assets while exploring methods for sharing maps with others. Each participant will have a chance to flex their newly-acquired GIS skills by working on a mapping project during the workshop. Feel free to bring ideas you may have for projects, and we will try to incorporate your ideas within the time constraints of the course. No previous GIS or GPS experience is required.
Participants will learn to create maps, edit data and conduct spatial analysis using ArcGIS for Desktop | make and share maps using ArcGIS Online | collect GPS data with mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) | get GIS data from a variety of sources | design and carry out a GIS-based projects
