Hands On Workshops
These hands on workshops were taught in a computer lab with pre-configured computers. However, this year we provided an option for attendees to bring their own computer. Instructions for configuring your computer in order to work through these workshops have been provided by the instructors.
During this workshop, you will learn: Geodatabase concepts and structure by exploring and creating a geospatial database; converting data to the Geodatabase format utilizing the Extract Transform Load (ETL) process; validating attributes with Domains; validating features with Topology; and editing with the Geodatabase.
Prerequisites: Participants should have basic knowledge of ArcGIS Desktop, geoprocessing and GIS data formats before attending this course.
Workshop Format:Approximately 50% lecture/demonstration, 50% hands on training via guided exercises completed individually on computers.
Zipfile includes: setup documentation, lecture presentation, exercise data.
Did you ever say to yourself, “I wish I had my own free web map server?” Of course you have! This is the workshop that will make your wish come true. In this workshop you will learn about:
- Preparing SQL Server spatial tables or shapefiles for web publishing using the free Quantum GIS (QGIS) system
- Publishing stylized data layers to a GeoServer Web Mapping Server
- Viewing your web mapping data locally or in the cloud, with viewers like QGIS or ArcGIS Earth
- The "Open Up Your Mapping with Open Source" workshop requires the installation of software on your computer. Refer to the documentation found in the zipfile.
- The install requires a 64-bit Windows operating system
- The install process takes approximately 30 minutes.
