Upcoming Geospatial Events on Campus

Getting Started with ArcGIS Pro
Instructor: Michael Shensky
Date: 1/31/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
ArcGIS Pro is now 5 years old and it is a great time to get acquainted with all of the new functionality that Esri's most powerful GIS software offers. This workshop will provide a walk through of all major ArcGIS Pro functionality and cover important things to know for transitioning successfully from ArcMap.
Finding Geospatial Data Online
Instructor: Michael Shensky
Date: 2/7/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
This workshop will provide instruction on browsing for geospatial data, cover how to search for specific datasets to download, and will discuss how to process downloaded data using GIS software to enhance its usability.
Using GIS to Work with Historical Imagery & Maps
Instructor: Josh Conrad
Date: 2/14/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
Historical maps and aerial photos can be valuable resources for geospatial analysis but often require georeferencing with GIS software before they can be effectively utilized. This workshop will demonstrate how to make the most of these historical raster based datasets.
Analyzing Census Demographic Data with GIS
Instructor: Michael Shensky
Date: 2/21/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
Demographic data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau and other similar agencies in other countries is often freely shared online in GIS compatible formats, but can often be difficult to utilize effectively. This workshop will showcase how these datasets can be excellent resources for supporting insightful geospatial analysis and discuss data processing strategies that are important for obtaining valid results.
Designing ArcGIS Online Story Maps
Instructor: TBA
Date: 2/28/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
Using georeferenced data from an Augustinian Order’s book of professions (Mexico, 1537-1620) and other related archival materials held at the Benson, this workshop will introduce you to ArcGIS StoryMaps, a web-based presentation tool for geospatial research. We will show you how to create and incorporate a map into an ArcGIS's StoryMap.
Automating GIS Processes with Python
Instructor: Michael Shensky
Date: 3/6/2020 (Fri.)
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: PCL Learning Lab 1
Event Type: Workshop
Event Series: Data & Donuts
Python is a powerful, widely used, scripting language that can be used to automate GIS processes in both QGIS and ArcGIS environments. This workshop will show you how to get started using Python to turn complex, tedious geospatial workflows into simple, documented, and reproducible scripted routines.
