Introductory Training in
Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Using Applications for Natural Resource Management
Florida Sea Grant, the University of Florida IFAS Extension, and Golder Associates invites you to register for a 3.5-day intensive training using ArcGIS 10.6, a powerful tool for managing natural resources and guiding growth and development processes. The training is held at one of the computer labs on the main campus of the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.
May 6th – 9th, 2019
In this Training
You will be introduced to ArcGIS Desktop, the primary product used by professionals to compile, analyze, and manage geographic information.
You will learn the most commonly used GIS skills in the industry today by completing “real-world” exercises that will build your confidence using GIS, increase your awareness about GIS data sources and help you explore GIS tools to enhance your research program.
How It Works
The training consists of a series of short lectures, which will introduce geospatial concepts. Lectures will be followed by exercises that attendees will complete using ArcGIS 10.6, applying the concepts learned.
During the training, each participant will have access to a computer workstation with all the needed materials and software, printed workbook documenting the steps required to complete the exercises and the information presented during the lectures. Several trainers will be on hand to provide assistance.
Who and Why You Should Attend
What You Will Learn
Collecting and Mapping Field Data Using a Smart Phone or Tablet
We are excited to offer an extra training module to guide you through the steps necessary to collect and map your own field data. This new module will train you to (1) create a data dictionary, (2) collect new spatial data in the field, and (3) create and share your spatial data using ArcGIS Collector and ArcGIS Online (AGOL).
This is an extra module that requires registration and an extra fee. This module will be taught after the conclusion of the 3.5-day training (Thursday 9, 2019 from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm).
People interested in participating only in this module should have previous experience in ArcGIS Desktop and geographic information systems.
