(Allison Alford - Western Data Systems) - $50
Workshop will be held Monday, September 24,  8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Course Description:

Students will learn the basic principles behind GPS data collection.  They will learn how to use Terra Sync and ArcPad softwares to collect data in the field.  GPS Pathfinder Office will be used to create a projecct, post process, and export data to mapping softwares such as ArcGIS, Microstation, and AutoCAD.  The class will involve hands on data collection in the field.

Lost In Lidar
(Brian Stinson - Surdex) -
$25
Workshop will be held Monday,
September 24,  8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Course Description:

Lidar for Dummies: The presentation will cover about all 4 sections of the overall series.  The 1st section will tentatively cover:
Some of the basics of LiDAR, such as:

L-1.  Learn a beginners view of how LiDAR works, EVEN what L- I - D- A- R stands for.

·  LiDAR Milestones – Changes over the last decade ·  Learn the main capture techniques and some details about how the LiDAR is used
·  Learn how to become Fluent in the Language of LiDAR- Learn terms such as
·  Repetition Rate
· Scan Angle
· Scan Frequency
· Flying Altitude
· Flight Line Spacing
· Nominal Point Spacing

 
L-2  Learn what you need to understand to decide whether or not LiDAR might be appropriate for your
agency’s surveying project needs. For Example:

· Guidance on how specifications are calculated and expressed
· Base Specifications that follow the guidance of the Draft USGS Lidar Standard Specifications and directions on
          Collection, Data Processing and Handling Deliverables
                                           i.      Metadata
                                         ii.      Raw Point Cloud
                                        iii.      Bare-earth DEM
                                       iv.      Recognizes common Buy-Up options

· Corridor mapping projects need to be conducted differently than a county wide collection projects.
· Mobile-mapping collection is an entirely different beast than a terrestrial or airborne collection.

 
L-3   LiDAR From Contours
· Why is LiDAR data valuable tool to use?
· Simple solutions on how what to look for in purchasing
· Choosing your LiDAR
· What “level” of LiDAR is just right for me? (1-4?)

 
L-4  We will finish with:  “Found!  Answers to the top ten question’s about LiDAR”
· Bring any questions
that you may have always wanted to ask but never have. We will have our full panel available and no, there are not any “Dumb Questions”
· We will be covering some of the more commonly asked questions as well such as:  If photogrammetric data works for me now how would  LiDAR compare/why would I use it?
 
Just as a reminder, these are entry level to intermediate courses.  If there are more advanced questions  you are encouraged to attend the L-4 class that is composed of our combined panel and is focused on uncovering the questions that may stump even the panel.  I assure you if they don’t know the answer, they will definitely find it out for you!.   if you have “general” questions about LiDAR and have been to embarrassed to ask we can probably get you the answer in any of the classes.

ArcMobile Applications
(Pam Kersh - ESRI) -
$25
Workshop will be held Monday,
September 24,  1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Course Description:

In this workshop we will go over options for bringing GIS data out into the field - without having network connectivity.  ArcGIS provides several out of the box options for creating data and maps that can be made portable and quickly used by public safety personnel out at an incident, even if they have no wi-fi, broadband, or cellular connections.  We will cover the steps to produce these maps for field use "on the fly", and how to prepare data and projects to be ready for an event when it happens.  The workflows that we will cover will progress from less software and GIS experience needed, to more advanced software and GIS experience needed

GIS Data Exploration
(Pam Jurney - Red Plains Professional, Inc) -
$25
Workshop will be held Monday,
September 24,  1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Course Description:

This workshop is about data exploration and making that data work in a GIS environment.  Information is readily available online through various federal agencies such as the USGS, USFWS, USDA, and FEMA.  During this workshop, we will navigate through the USGS digital topo maps, the National Wetlands Inventory, the Natural Resources Conservation Services (soils), and the FEMA map service center.  These websites have a plethora of available data, and we will discuss how to utilize this data within GIS applications.  The workshop will also cover some simple geographical analysis tools that can be used for better understanding of how the natural and human environments interact.  
Attendees are invited to bring laptops that can connect to the internet for a better hands-on experience.
