Geospatial Technology Workshop
Goal: Provide overview of geospatial technology to natural resource practitioners with hands on experience focused on practical examples.
Workshop Content: This workshop combines 2 workshops offered through the UC Berkeley Geospatial Innovation Facility.
One workshop segment has been designed for participants interested in environmental science with little to no experience in GIS. The presentation will get you up to speed on what kind of analyses GIS may be used for, as well as the basic structures of spatial data. After the lecture you will follow an interactive exercise that has been designed to introduce you to ArcGIS Desktop software while analyzing environmental data from the Northern Sierra Nevada.
The second segment is an introduction to webGIS. It has also been designed for participants with little to no GIS or web experience, and serves as a practical exercise for you to begin developing your own web maps with google maps. The program also includes an evening presentation on Lidar technology.
