Morning Workshops

Introduction to Cartographic Concepts I - $25
(Mike Larson - Coordinator, OSU Cartographic Services )

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  8:00 am - 12:00 pm - Room 111

Course Description:

This lecture and discussion based workshop is an introduction to the basic concepts of cartography.  The focus of this workshop will be to explore and discuss the basic concepts used to design and construct an informative as well as a visual pleasing map. Topics will include a brief (very brief) history of the development of the profession and the basic elements of a map (including titles, scales, directional arrows and legends. We will look at how the use of text, color and scale can enhance or detract from the quality and readability of the map. Lastly, we will examine typical layout and design concepts and strategies

 ArcGIS Tips & Tricks -

$50 (Pam Jurney - Cross Timbers Consulting, LLC and Elizabeth Montgomery-Anderson, Cherokee Nation)

 

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  8:00 am - 12:00 pm  - Lab 201

Course Description:

The purpose of this workshop is to save a full handfuls of hair.  We will have opportunities to explore tools and techniques in ArcGIS that you don’t have at the office.  The workshop will be activity based (bring your clicking finger) and use GIS data that is readily available (downloadable and free).  This will be a safe environment for people to discuss and find more efficient ways to operate ArcGIS.

Coordinate Datum Shifts and GNSS Best Practices  $50
(Allison Alford - Western Data Systems)

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  8:00 am - 12:00 pm  - Lab 203

Course Description:

If you are currently using GNSS (GPS) equipment for data collection then please join us for this in depth course on the ins and outs of GNSS.  With all the new GNSS technology that has been introduced over the last several years it’s important to stay up to speed.  GNSS is only as accurate and useful if it used correctly.  There are techniques that should be taken will capturing data with GNSS to be able to achieve the desired results for High Accuracy Mapping and Surveying.  This course will explain those techniques as well as explain how we record accurate GNSS data as well as the sources of errors and how to avoid and correct for them.  It’s not enough to just stand there and record a position, simple techniques can get your data where it needs to be. 

Every day Mappers and Surveyors are lining up data on a map or in a database and every day the concern comes back that data was take inaccurately in the field.  As this can be the case, most of the time that data was recorded precisely but the coordinate systems and datums are not the same match.  As our accuracies within our GNSS receivers increases it becomes more important to use the correct systems and datums.  This class will teach the history of the coordinate systems and demonstrate how data can be affected by simply changing to what you “think” the correct coordinate system and datum choice.

Get your data on the web and in the field - $75
(Esri Instructor- Esri)

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  8:00 am - 12:00 pm   - Room 112

Course Description:

Maps are designed to accomplish specific workflows. There are a few things to consider when authoring your data for consumption, including: sunlight on field devices, varying form factors, and lack of a mouse and keyboard on mobile devices. Firewalls, replication, and limited connectivity pose additional challenges for publishing to devices. Attend this session to learn about best practices for authoring and publishing maps to the web and mobile devices to help get your data in the field.

Afternoon Workshops

Introduction to Cartographic Concepts II - $25
(Mike Larson - Coordinator, OSU Cartographic Services )

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  1:00 am - 5:00 pm  - Room 111

Course Description:

This lecture and discussion based workshop is a continuation of the Introduction to Cartographic Concepts I workshop. In this workshop, we will go more in-depth in our examination of layout and design concepts and strategies.  Additional topics will include data representation; how to display point, line, polygon and temporal (if time permits) data. We will look at how projections and projection issues effect the cartographic display. We will finish up with some discussion on static vs interactive/animated maps.

Spatial Statistics in ArcMap - $50
(Pam Jurney - Cross Timbers Consulting, LLC )

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  1:00 am - 5:00 pm  - Lab 201

Course Description:

Take a trip through the spatial statistics toolbox in ArcGIS. 

Analyzing patterns, mapping clusters, measuring geographic distributions.  Cluster and outlier analysis, hot spot analysis, mean center.

Have you ever wondered what these terms mean and how you can use them to further explore spatial relationships? 

This half-day workshop has been set up to work through applications of the spatial statistics tools that are available in ArcMap.  We will discuss basic statistical applications, how to render results in ArcMap, and how to interpret the results.

MapSAR (GIS in Search & Rescue) - $50
(Wes Cleland - Arkansas Game & Fish Commission)

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22,  1:00 am - 5:00 pm   - Lab 203

Course Description:

Each year state and local agencies along with volunteer organizations are involved in numerous Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to assist SAR professionals with research and planning is a new concept that is continuously developing. It can often be difficult to startup and maintain GIS operations during a SAR event. This training is designed to help participants learn how to use MapSAR - a GIS (Geographic Information System) tool - for setting and maintaining Search and Rescue (SAR) operations.

Be awesome with ArcGIS Online- $75
(Esri Instructor- Esri)

Workshop will be held Monday, September 22, 1:00 am - 5:00 pm - Room 112

Course Description:

ArcGIS Online is a content management system for geographic information enabling you to share your content and to power many types of GIS-based applications and end-user websites. Getting started with best practices will help you get the most out of your ArcGIS Online subscription. During this session we will look at different user roles, adding new roles, site setup and administration, registering your content, creating hosted services, data storage, sharing data and maps, creating and managing groups, collaboration with maps both inside and outside your organization, create web mapping applications and embedding maps into web sites. This is a fast paced hands on workshop. If you have a zipped up shapefile, a csv file and know your rest url, you can use your own data for the class.
