AM Workshops – 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

AM01 Introduction to ArcGIS Pro for ArcGIS Desktop Users

Instructor: Zachary Vavra, Geospatial Analysis Center
Audience Level:
Beginner
Workshop Format: Lecture / Hands-On
Hardware/Software Required: Workshop will be in a computer lab with the software already installed. Participants will be provided guest accounts to log into the computer and use the software. 

This hands-on workshop will introduce Esri's newest Desktop application, ArcGIS Pro. Participants will learn about the various changes from ArcMap and gain experience with the new interface through multiple exercises.

AM02 QGIS Basics

Instructor: Carl Sack, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College
Audience Level:
Intermediate
Workshop Format: Hands-On
Hardware/Software Required: Participants will need to have QGIS 3 downloaded and installed on laptops they bring to the workshop. The free software is available for PC, Mac, and Linux at https://qgis.org/en/site/. The instructor will provide laptops with the software installed to participants who do not have one. 

QGIS is THE open source alternative to ArcGIS Desktop and Pro. It's more friendly to GIS beginners, available for Mac and Linux as well as Windows platforms, and FREE (as in Freedom and Beer). Under the hood, its processing capabilities have advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, and it plays much nicer with other open-source packages like PostGIS and GRASS. Even if you work in the ESRI universe, it's still worth knowing about and using from time to time. This workshop will overview the interface and capabilities of QGIS for the Esri enthusiast and the casual map maker alike.

 

PM Workshops – 1:00 - 4:00 PM

PM01 Data collection using Survey123 and Collector for ArcGIS

Instructor: Brandon Keinath, Minnesota Power
Audience Level:
Beginner
Workshop Format: Hands-On
Hardware/Software Required: Workshop will be in a computer lab with the software already installed. Participants will be provided guest accounts to log into the computer and use the software.

Survey123 and Collector for ArcGIS are great data collection tools. Easy to use and simple to create. They are able to work independently and in conjunction for more complicated data workflows. In this workshop participants will create maps and surveys, collect data, and analyze the results. This session will also cover topics and resources to help participants take their Collector and Survey123 projects to the next level through the use of off-line workflows, advanced forms, and Arcade scripting.

PM02 UAS for GIS Professionals

Instructor: Michelle Carroll, SC Recon
Audience Level:
Intermediate
Workshop Format: Lecture
Hardware/Software Required: None  

Unmanned systems have landed at the intersection of “emerging technology” and “mainstream tool.” We will review the current state of UAS technologies, highlight trends in function and value, and provide an insider view of industry developments. Attendees will emerge with practical considerations for both contract and in-house drone services.

PM03 Configuring, Customizing, and Coding an Opensource Web GIS Portal

Instructor: Kim Sundeen, Lake Superior Consulting
Audience Level:
Intermediate
Workshop Format: Lecture / Hands-On
Hardware/Software Required: Participants will need to have QGIS, version 2.x and above, downloaded and installed on laptops they bring to the workshop. The free software is available for PC, Mac, and Linux at https://qgis.org/en/site/. You will also be required to set up and deploy the virtual environment on your computer prior to the date of the workshop. The instructors will contact you with more information and installation instructions at least 2 weeks before the workshops date.

Join us to configure your own opensource web GIS environment in either an Azure virtual environment or locally on your machine. Explore the process of installing, configuring, and designing data, maps, and web maps using GeoServer as the GIS server, PostgreSQL as the database, and OpenLayers/Leaflet as the front-end web map library to display the data to your users. We'll use the Boundless Suite process to help us with the setup on your preferred OS (linux, windows or mac). We have a sample project for publishing a georeferenced bathymetry and hotspot fishing map. We didn't want to share our secret fishing spots publically, so using our internal web GIS brings our fishing spots to life!
