(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to ArcGIS Pro (Esri)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Joe Peters (NOTE: This is the first offering of a one-day workshop. The Tuesday ArcGIS Pro workshop is a repeat of this class, NOT a continuation. Please do not sign up for both classes.)
(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Cartography (UGIC)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Brandon Plewe
(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to Python (UGIC)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Keaton Walker
- Want to learn how to make your ArcGIS Pro geoprocessing workflows repeatable and efficient? If so Python is the tool you need. This Python course will start at a beginner level with a review of the basics of Python syntax and data types. We will also learn to use variables and basic python data structures like the list and dictionary. Then we will take a dive into functions and classes and in order to become familiar with the fundamentals of an object oriented programming language like Python.
Once we have covered the basics we will work with arcpy, the Python scripting library for ArcGIS, to access data with cursors and organize geoprocessing tools into a program. A stretch goal for the course will be learning to use the arcpy geometry objects and trying the ArcGIS api for Python.
Previous Python experience is not a requirement, but some basic awareness of running ArcGIS geoprocessing tools will be helpful. ArcGIS Pro will be used and it should be installed and licensed before the course begins.
(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to UAS – Unmanned Aerial Systems (UGIC)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructors: Michael Philp
- This class will involve a general introduction to UAS, and a discussion of the evolution of UAS data over the years and the laws governing UAS usage. In addition, we will cover hardware platforms, software tools, and how to best incorporate your UAS into a geospatial workflow. We’ll talk about some practical items, tips and tricks, and other essentials to getting started with managing your own UAS program. Additionally, we will discuss the Part 107 test and what it takes to be prepared for it.
(Tues.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to ArcGIS Pro (Esri)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Joe Peters (NOTE: This is a 2nd offering/repeat of the Monday workshop, NOT a continuation of the Monday ArcGIS Pro workshop. This is a one-day class. Please do not sign up for both classes.)
(Tues.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: – Field Operations with ArcGIS Apps (Esri)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructors: Chris LeSueur & Derek Law
(Tues.) Pre-Conf. Full Day Workshop: Incident Command System and Emergency Management for GIS (UGIC)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Unified Fire Authority
- Because GIS plays an important role in emergency response, it is critical for specialists to be familiar with the terminology, concepts, and roles within The Incident Command System. The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized approach to the command, control, and coordination of emergency response that provides a common hierarchy within which responders from multiple agencies can manage an incident effectively. Part of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), ICS now serves as a model for similar approaches internationally. The 100-level course introduces the basics of ICS, including its history, features and principles, and organizational structure; it also provides the foundation for higher level ICS training, including the subsequent courses covered in this training. ICS-200 is designed to enable personnel involved in an incident to operate efficiently and understand the supervisory roles within ICS. Both 700 and 800 cover NIMS-related topics with the former providing an introduction and the latter providing an overview of the National Response Framework. Certificates of completion from FEMA will be awarded to participants and can be used for credentialing to become a member of the state’s GIS response team.
(Tues.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Insights for ArcGIS (UGIC)
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Bruce Cheney
- Come to this one-day training to learn how to use Insights for ArcGIS. Learn how to perform simple yet powerful geospatial data analytics. Explore spatial and tabular data together and get answers to questions. Learn how to explore and analyze information to gain deeper understanding into what is happening with your data. Use these newfound Insights to create opportunity for impactful decisions and meaningful change in your work.
