Brief description:This five-session workshop is designed for students interested in gaining intermediate-level skills in the use of ArcGIS 10. The topics include: geocoding, georeferencing, modelbuilder, and the Spatial Analyst toolbox. The format will be a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises during which students will explore GIS concepts and applications. The primary objective of the workshop is for students to acquire a set of core GIS skills sought by today's employers. In so doing, students will use real-world vector and raster geospatial data from a variety of sources, including the City and County of San Francisco. The five week workshop will focus on the following:• Geocoding addresses using ArcGIS 10 Address Locators• Georeferencing non-spatial raster imagery onto current basemaps - we call it “new life for old maps”• Geoprocessing with tools such as Buffer, Clip and Union and visualizing workflows using ModelBuilder• Obtaining vector and raster data sets from web-based data portals such as USGS Seamless Server• Exploring the ArcGIS 10 Image Analysis functions• Application of GIS skills to collaboratively develop an approach and techniques for a site suitability project Important Notes:• Prerequisite Required: student must possess basic ArcGIS skills; the GIS Quick Start class would meet this requirement. Workshop Includes:• A 1 year license of Esri's ArcGIS 10x for personal use• Hands-on lab time and opportunity to talk with instructors• Certificate of Attendance This class meets once (1) per week (6pm-9pm) for four (4) weeks.
