The IGIS Team is pleased to share our workshop schedule for Spring 2023. Workshops are the best part of our 'trilogy' of strategic goals - research, technical projects, and training - because this is where we get to share the tips and tricks we pick up every day. See descriptions below, and if you're not available to attend one that really interests you keep an eye open for the recordings on our YouTube Channel.
Introduction to ArcGIS Online
Friday January 27, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
ArcGIS Online is the online component of the ESRI geospatial ecosystem, and the foundation for web mapping, story maps, and mobile data collection. This workshop will provide an overview of ArcGIS Online and teach participants how to create a web map. This workshop is a prerequisite for the Story Maps and Field Maps workshops, and recommended for ArcGIS Pro.
Requirements: No experience required. Participants must have an ArcGIS Online account set up prior to the workshop (free for all UCANR employees, temporary accounts available for others). Details and registration.
Introduction to ArcGIS Pro
Friday February 17, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
ArcGIS Pro is ESRI's powerhouse desktop application for all things GIS. It can do anything from basic cartography to advanced geospatial modeling. This introduction will get you started creating maps with local and online GIS data.
Requirements: Participants must have ArcGIS Pro installed on their personal computer prior to the workshop. ArcGIS Pro is for Windows only. Licenses are free for all UCANR employees, and temporary accounts available for others. No experience needed, but the ArcGIS Online workshop (January 27) or equivalent experience is strongly encouraged. Details and registration.
Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks in ArcGIS
April 7, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
Jupyter Notebooks are a user-friendly and interactive way to write Python code. ArcGIS Pro supports Juptyer notebooks natively, opening the door to a wide range of options for automation and extensibility. This workshop will get you started using Jupyter Notebooks in ArcGIS Pro to automate workflows, perform geoprocessing tasks, create data summaries, and import downscaled climate data from Cal-Adapt.
Requirements: Basic familiarity with ArcGIS Pro is expected. Licenses for ArcGIS Pro are free for all UCANR employees, and temporary accounts available for others. Experience with Python is helpful but not required. Details and registration.
June 26 - 30, 2023 • CSU Monterey Bay
DroneCamp is a unique, one-week intensive short course that covers everything you need to know to get started using drones for data collection and research: equipment, safety and regulations, flight planning, flight instruction, data processing, and data analysis. Now in our 7th year, DroneCamp is a collaborative effort between UCANR/IGIS, CSU Monterey Bay, UC Santa Cruz, UC Merced, and others.
Requirements: No experience necessary! Registration will open in January 2023. This program has always sold out so save your spot early. Scholarships available. For details, see https://dronecampca.org/.
