SHORT COURSES


Beginners GIS
This is a 2-days course on the use of ArcGIS. Participants will learn how to properly use a Geographical Information System (GIS) to create and modify map areas (such as boundaries), lines (such as rivers and pipelines), and points (such as wells, pump stations, meters) using real world coordinates, and how to store and analyze information on these features. Focus of the first day is on understanding potential use of GIS as a decision support system for water districts, and on gaining basic mapping and data organization skills. On the second day participants will learn more functionalities and practices which are needed when managing and modifying GIS data on a daily basis. Prior experience with GIS is not necessary, but participants should be familiar with personal computers and common software (agenda 2014; brochure 2014).

Intermediate GIS
This is a 2-days advanced class on the use of ArcGIS, continuing from the beginner's course. Students will learn how to create personal geodatabases, conduct spatial analysis, and publish maps online.

GPS
This -day class will provide hands-on instruction on how to use GPS (global positioning systems) for mapping, and will include simple hand-held units to more complex, survey-grade units. No previous experience in GPS, mapping or surveying is required. Students will learn how to record the coordinates of locations and import that data into a computer for displaying onto GIS or other types of maps.
