ArcGIS 101 Workshop

August 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
Snow Falls on Watson Library

This is a hands-on introduction to geographic information systems (GIS), including basic concepts and terminology, data types, applications and software options. The workshop is designed to teach attendees how GIS might be used in class projects, theses and dissertations, and faculty research. We will mainly cover ArcGIS but will discuss some free/ open source GIS and mapping applications, and the majority of skills taught are applicable to other types of  geospatial data and software. Participants will work through step-by-step exercises to become familiar with navigational tools, geospatial data format and to explore GIS data from both the spatial and tabular side.

Students, staff and faculty from any discipline are welcome to come. Please register if you would like to come, and attend the workshop if you register. This workshop may only be offered once a semester.

Please register here.
