Afternoon Workshops

Knowing Spatial Reference and Misidentified Ice Cream - $25

Instructor:  Chance Alford – Western Data Systems

Course Description:

We will begin with FREE ICE CREAM!  We will then look at some of the challenges that the modern Cartographer has regarding geospatial data and spatial reference frames.  In North America we have some regional units of measure, projections, and evolving Datums that might not be as understood as they should.  We will have a working “Blue Collar” look at some of the sources of misaligned data and how important knowing the correct Spatial Reference is regarding data accuracy.  Fun for all!

Workshop will be held Monday, September 21,  1:00 am - 4:30 pm - Room 112

ArcGIS Tips & Tricks II - $50

Instructor: Carrie Landgraf, GISP, Garver

Course Description:

This workshop will build on some of the content explored in Tips & Tricks I. It will be a hands-on experience, with questions and discussion encouraged. Fundamentally, the workshop will briefly explore the differences between shapefile and geodatabase storage formats. And then comes the exciting part!

Building and using topology can sound like a daunting task, and then the found errors can seem even worse. This workshop will discuss the usefulness of topology rules, provide the steps on how to create a geodatabase topology, explore different topology rules, explore other topologies (geometric networks and map topologies), and provide helpful tips/tools to automate correcting a large number of errors. We will also touch upon ModelBuilder as another tool for automating repetitive tasks.

To end on a fun note, students will learn how to use Data Driven Pages to generate a map book. Creating such a custom template looks professional and saves time. The workshop will also explore neat tips to transform your map from “blah” to “ah”.

Workshop will be held Monday, September 21,  1:00 am - 4:30 pm - Room 201
