R is an enormously popular open-source platform for statistics, programming, and data science. The command line interface however is very different from Excel, and can take some getting used to. This introductory 4-part workshop series will start from the beginning. Through slides and hands-on exercises, participants will learn the fundamentals of working with data in R, including importing data, cleaning and manipulating tabular data for analysis, visualization, and simple statistical tests.
Requirements. No experience necessary. Participants with some experience are welcome to start with Part 2, but are expected to know the basics. To complete the hands-on exercises, participants need to sign-up for a Posit Cloud account (free). Details and Registration.
Introduction to ArcGIS Pro
Friday October 13, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
ArcGIS Pro is ESRI's powerhouse desktop application for all things GIS. It can do everything from basic cartography to advanced geospatial modeling. This introduction will get you started creating maps with local and online GIS data.
Requirements. ArcGIS licenses are free for all UC ANR employees, and temporary accounts available for others. Instructions will be provided on how to access the software. No experience needed, but the ArcGIS Online workshop (Sept 22) or equivalent experience is strongly encouraged. Details and registration.
Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks in ArcGIS Pro
November 17, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
Jupyter Notebooks are a user-friendly and interactive way to write Python code. ArcGIS Pro supports Jupyter 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 UC ANR employees, and temporary accounts available for others. Experience with Python is helpful but not required. Details and registration.
Introduction to ArcGIS Story Maps
Friday Dec. 15, 2023 • 1:00 - 4:00pm • online • free
Story Maps for ArcGIS is a powerful and popular platform for creating websites that convey compelling narratives through text, media, and maps. Story Maps are increasingly used for online extension, program reporting, and presentations. This workshop will get you started and give you the tools to create your own Story Maps.
Requirements: Participants must have an ArcGIS Online account set up prior to the workshop (free for all UCANR employees, temporary accounts available for others). The Intro to AGOL workshop, or equivalent background, is a prerequisite for this workshop. Details and registration.
