This is a half-day workshop. The instructor will provide breaks as needed that do not disrupt the flow of the workshop.
Hands On WorkshopInsights for ArcGIS is a new user experience for analysis that focuses on simpler ways to work with your data to answer questions and share results. Insights for ArcGIS is designed to make interactive and exploratory analysis fast and intuitive so you can gain understanding from your data in a spatial context. Capabilities that make Insights more intuitive including visualization first, drag and drop analytics, as well as on-the-fly filtering and aggregations. This session will provide an overview of techniques for data exploration and analysis with Insights for ArcGIS.

Participants will receive a general overview of its required components and a demonstration of steps to create an interactive map from a spreadsheet. We will also explore tools to visualize, analyze, and share maps with others. This application enables non-GIS users to gain new insights from their spreadsheets and make location-based decisions with ease. It also gives GIS professionals immense time saving potential by enabling staff to make their own maps.

It will cover how to bring GIS data into the software, develop map views, themes, and styles, work with attributes, labeling functions, graticules and exporting to a Geospatial PDF. Experience with Illustrator (or even Photoshop) is recommended. If you do not have any experience with illustrator or photoshop you are welcome to attend as an observer. In this instance you would not be seated at a computer, but would be able to set in open seating at the back of the room. It is first come-first serve.

Hands On WorkshopCome join us in the 5th installment of the workshop series! This time, we will explore the power of SQL in FME-based GIS data integration and automation. The workshop attempts to answer questions such as: I am a GIS person, why should I care about SQL? Can I use SQL when we do not have a SQL database? How to improve data transformation performance by managing indexes? How to avoid foreign key violation error when parent keys are not loaded? How to integrate stored procedures / functions in workspaces? The instructors will summarize FME readers, writers and transformers that are SQL-oriented or with SQL options. Comparisons will be made between SQL and non-SQL approaches to illustrate the applicabilities of one approach vs the other. The demo and labs will use PostgreSQL and SQLIte will be used for demos and labs. Safe Software will provide FME training licenses in support of the workshop. This is an intermediate level workshop; attendees with basic knowledge of SQL and FME will likely to make most out of the workshop.

Hands On WorkshopToday\'s organizations need to make informed decisions in a timely manner based on an increasing amount of data from many sources such as cloud, drones, databases, IoT devices, web services, etc. These data-driven decisions have greatly increased the importance of organizational data, as it is no longer siloed and used by only one department. This brings data quality, processes and interconnectivity into play. In this workshop, learn how FME, an ETL-based technology with a rich spatial toolset allows us to leverage your organizational data in automated workflows.
