Successfully Navigating the Changes Coming to 911 GIS: $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Instructor:

Richard Kelly – 911 Datamasters, Inc / 911 Vice President Enterprise Geospatial Solutions

Course Description:

911 is changing.  GIS data for NG9-1-1 is being asked to fulfill different needs than it did in E911.  The same problems consistently emerge as agencies try to adapt to these new requirements.  Delayed progress, overly complex data structures and inefficient workflows can all be avoided. We will discuss some of the biggest obstacles and how to avoid them.

GIS Resources for Floodplain Management : $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Instructor:

Willard Gustafson, Meshek & Associates, LLC

Course Description:

If you work in GIS for very long, chances are high that you have been, or will be at some point, tasked with creating a map of floodplains. Maybe you already are working with a Certified Floodplain Manager(CFM) for some task or are interested in becoming the CFM yourself. This workshop is intended to give you, the GIS professional, a working understanding of floodplains and floodplain management. We will answer the questions; What are Floodplains? How they are defined and generated? Where can I find most current floodplain data and revisions?  And, how can I use this information to effectively communicate the risk associated with flooding through maps, webmaps, and map applications.

Spatial Statistics in ArcMap : $60

Hands On Computer Lab

Instructor:

Pamela Jurney, Cross Timbers Consulting, LLC

Course Description:

This workshop is a guided tour through the spatial statistics toolbox in ArcGIS.  Have you ever wondered what it really means to analyze patterns, map clusters, and measure geographic distributions?  What do these terms mean and how you can use them to further explore spatial relationships?

 This half-day short course has been set up to work through applications of the spatial statistics tools that are available in ArcMap.  We will discuss basic statistical applications, how to render results in ArcMap, and how to interpret the results.

 Key themes: Spatial statistics, mean / median centers, mapping clusters, geographic distributions, cluster and outlier analysis, hot spot analysis

Reanimating Field-to-Office Workflows by Linking Survey123, Collector, and Workforce : $60

Hands On Computer Lab

Instructor:

Madeline Dillner, Oklahoma Corporation Commission

Course Description:

Using the ESRI mobile apps to interact with field staff and collect field data adds accuracy, speed, and data richness to workflows. Over the course of this workshop, each participant will use all three of the main ESRI mobile apps in a single workflow, namely, a (fictional) hunt for the long-lost treasure of the Merchant Royal, a real British sailing ship that sank off the coast of southern England in 1641. Participants will gain experience in all three apps by taking on the role of ship sonar crew (Survey123), professional diver (Collector), and archaeologist (Workforce), all working for the private company Odysseus Marine Exploration to find the elusive wreck and its millions of dollars in sunken gold, silver, and bullion.  By the end of this hands-on, half-day workshop, participants will know how to use the ESRI mobile apps Survey123, Collector, and Workforce, send data back to the ArcGIS Online environment, and create maps and Story Maps from the data collected.

 This workshop is in the computer lab. Although Survey123 surveys can be accessed without an ArcGIS license, Collector and Workforce require licenses. Therefore, it is encouraged that class participants have an ArcGIS license to use in class, or be prepared for a more classroom-like experience. Instructional materials will be made available to class participants.

 Personal ArcGIS licenses may be purchased from ESRI for $100/year at https://www.esri.com/en-us/arcgis/products/arcgis-for-personal-use.

Introduction to Data Types and Basic Cartographic Symbolization and Representation : $60

Hands On Computer Lab

Instructor:

Michael Larson, Oklahoma State University Cartography Services


Course Description:

Cartography is a tool for communicating geospatial information and like any other communications tool, having a solid grounding of the basic concepts and principles will help to increase its effectiveness. This workshop will be an introduction to the basics types of spatial data. We will delve into what data types are, and examine their forms and functions.   Additional discussion and demonstrations will cover how to represent data with various forms of symbolization with further exploration into how changes in color, style, form, and scale can drastically change the look and feel of spatial data on a map.
