GIS Workshop – Coordinate Systems & Projections


Next Wednesday 6/1 from 11-1 there will be a new GIS workshop "Coordinate Systems & Projections" offered in EDS.  This workshop will provide a very generalized introduction to the components of Earth coordinate reference systems and map projections.  The focus will be on providing the basic concepts needed for working in GIS applications, specifically ArcMap.

Summer GIS Workshops


gis_logo_smallWe’ve put together a GIS workhsop series starting this week Wednesday 5/25 and running just about every Wednesday  through early August.

The workshops focus on both core GIS skills such as understanding coordinate systems & projections, georeferencing and geocoding and a couple workshops focusing on Model Builder, ArcPy, Google Earth Pro and working with KML.

The Intro to GIS workshop is this Wednesday, 5/25 at 11am in Lehman Library, room 215. Registration is now open.

With the exception of the Model Builder and ArcPy workshops, attendance to a previous workshop isn’t necessary, just keep in mind that most workshops require some basic knowledge of GIS to attend.
