GPS Data Collection and Management
GPS Data Collection is at the core of GIS and forms the foundations of the GIS on the Gila River Indian Community.

Over time, more advanced GPS equipment has been used and better methods applied to the collection process in order to improve upon the quality of the data collected. This presentation will introduce the audience to the equipment and methods that are used to: collect GPS data, record metadata, and incorporate GPS data into the Gila River Community Geodatabase.
