This introductory session will focus upon the fundamental concepts and skills needed to begin using Geographic Information Systems software for the exploration and analysis of spatial data in ArcGIS. Topics will include: What is GIS? Spatial Data Models and Formats; Projections and Coordinate Systems; Basic Data Management; The ArcMap User Interface; and Simple Analysis using Visualization.
This workshop builds upon the skills obtained in the Introduction to GIS Mapping and ESRI's ArcGIS Software workshop. Attendees will be introduced to the concept of Geoprocessing using ArcToolbox. Topics will include: Use of Relates & Relationship Classes, Geoprocessing of geographic data, Geocoding of street addresses, Use and Creation of Raster Data, Overlay Analysis, and Advanced Manipulation of Tabular Data. Part of the Yale University Library Map Collection GIS Workshop Series
This workshop will introduce GIS Users to the integration of basic creation and editing of data into GIS Workflows and Cartographic Layout. Attendees will work through an entire project workflow from creation of Geodatabase to final cartographic product. Topics will include: File Geodatabases and their Creation and Management; Georeferencing, Mosaicing and Management of raster imagery, Direct Editing of GIS Data and Creation of Effective Map Layouts suitable for publication. Part of the Yale University Library Map Collection GIS Workshop Series.
This workshop is largely discussion and demonstration, given to limitations imposed by the use of GPS equipment. Participants will be given a brief overview of the Global Positioning System and how it functions. Weather permitting, participants will venture out to collect GPS data, then return to the classroom to see a demonstration of how that data is transfered from the GPS equipment to ArcGIS, using the free GPS data management software, DNR Garmin. Topics will include: The GPS System; Planning a GPS Survey; Collecting Different types of GPS Data in the Field; Transferring GPS Data to ArcGIS; Improving Accuracy using Occupation/Averaging; Hotlinking of Digital Photos using Tracklogs; Use of Post-Consumer Grade GPS.
These tutorials are from previous semesters of the Yale Map Department Wokshop Series and were designed for ArcGIS 9.x.
