Don’t Run with Scissors, You Are Responsible for NG9-1-1.  Part 1 : $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Jerry Stewart / Sandy Dyre , Michael Baker International / Datamark

Course Description:

Next Generation (NG9-1-1) brings GIS into the forefront of 9-1-1 call routing. This combined with the increasing adoption of GIS technology by Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software providers make GIS a core technology to 9-1-1 Call Center and public safety in general. Part 1 of a 2-part series, this session will focus on helping Public Safety and GIS professionals understand 9-1-1 technology and terminology, an introduction to NG9-1-1, the role of GIS in NG9-1-1 call routing, and the need to build partnerships to achieve.

Workshop will be held Monday, September 16

Utilizing Your Mobile Device for High-Accuracy GNSS Data Collection: $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Noah Ward, Allterra Central

Course Description:

So you are considering high-accuracy GNSS data collection by smartphone or tablet, but where do you start? Which mobile devices will work? What app will you use for data collection? Can I just use the mobile device alone? How do you get high-accuracy data? What are real-time corrections? Do I need internet connectivity at all times? How do you deploy data to the device? This workshop will be an introduction to high accuracy data collection by mobile device, and what to consider before choosing the field solution that works best for your organization or project. We will discuss topics such as device requirements, software application options, GNSS receiver options, RTK real-time corrections, and GIS data optimization for field collection. This workshop will include additional discussion and demonstration of ESRI Collector for ArcGIS and Trimble GNSS receiver configurations, tech tips, and things to consider.

Introduction to Projections: The Art and Science of Making a Round Earth Flat: $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Mike Larson, Oklahoma State University (OSU)

Course Description:

A projection is a systematic and orderly representation of the earth’s grid upon a plane. It is the process of taking geospatial information from a 3 dimensional world and representing it on a 2 dimensional plane (think old school map). This workshop will be an introduction to the basic concepts and theory of map projections. We will start by defining basic terminology and concepts and then explore the earth’s size and shape. We will discuss what it is to be a sphere and why the Earth isn’t one. We will delve into projection types, classifications, and properties. We will examine why you shouldn’t calculate area from a Mercator projection. Lastly we will round out with some examples of projection mistakes that are common to digital mapping and GIS.

Getting the most from you LiDAR Data: $60

Hands On Computer Lab - Room 201

Julie Parker, TeachMeGIS

Course Description:

What do autonomous vehicles, solar energy, flood models, and archeological surveys all have in common?

As diverse as these things may seem, they all leverage a single geospatial technology- LiDAR.   Data derived from LiDAR can be a high-accuracy mapping and computer modeling tool in the hands of a trained GIS professional.  Even better, you can obtain LiDAR data for FREE from many Federal, State and Local government GIS portals, including OKMAPS.org.   ArcGIS Desktop 10.x has tools for managing and visualizing LiDAR data products without any extensions and GIS Pros with Spatial Analyst or 3D Analyst extensions can perform in-depth analysis and 3-D mapping.  Come learn how to download and use LiDAR data in your projects.  We’ll show you where to find data, give you real-world uses for LiDAR, and teach you how to put this technology to work in your organization.

Afternoon Workshops

1:00 pm  - 4:30 pm (unless Instructor specifies otherwise)


Don’t Run with Scissors, You Are Responsible for NG9-1-1.  Part 2 : $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Jerry Stewart / Sandy Dyre , Michael Baker International / Datamark

Course Description:

Continuing the discussion of Next Generation (NG9-1-1) and the GIS that impacts 9-1-1 call routing, the session, Part 2 of our 2-part series of the Don’t Run with Scissors workshop, will continue the NG9-1-1 discussion with a review of the NENA GIS Data Model standard (NENA-STA-006.1-2018), the Civic Location Data Exchange Format (CLDXF) standard (NENA-STA-004.1-2014), and the tie to the Presence Information Data Format-Location Object (PIDF-LO) for data conveyance; data quality considerations; and the maintenance guidelines and workflows to consider as part of the NG9-1-1 migration for GIS professionals. Our afternoon session will also include a demonstration on using the DATAMARK SaaS application to identify anomalies to the NENA Standard in typical GIS datasets and how to address those anomalies.

GISP: The Road to An Exam: $30

Lecture / Classroom Style

Bill Hodge,GISP,  GISCI

Course Description:

This series of presentations and interactive discussions will provide a background on certification in general, the GISP's history in particular, and an overview of its status, now that an exam is being added. All who participate will have a clear understanding of the current requirements and where each participant stands with it in regard to her or his individual career.

Introduction to Metadata for Data Management: $30 - (CLASS FULL)

Lecture / Classroom Style

Thomas Burley, USGS

Course Description:

This session will introduce the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) along with a rationale for integrating metadata into an organization’s processes. Moving beyond the traditional definitions of geospatial or “GIS” data, in an environmental context most data have a spatial component regardless of format. The flexibility of the FGDC CSDGM standard allows for capturing the critical characteristics of your data resources. Metadata describe information about a dataset, including who, what, where, when, why, and how, so that a dataset can be reused, the context and inputs understood, and integrated with other datasets for analysis and synthesis. A business case for metadata will be discussed to frame the importance of documenting data resources throughout the data lifecycle process to manage data quality, longevity, and for enabling data discovery. An overview of the FGDC CSDGM standard will be presented to provide understanding of the real-world information that is captured in a metadata record. Finally, example FGDC CSDGM metadata creation tools and workflows will be discussed.

Basic Map Making in ArcPro Are you ArcPro-shy?: $60

Hands On Computer Lab - Room 201

Pamela Jurney, Cross Timbers Consulting

Course Description:

Meaning, are you terribly comfortable with ArcMap but feeling the pressure to learn how to operate in ArcPro?  I’m there too.  This workshop will take us through the steps of something familiar – a basic map – but we will be building it in ArcPro.  We will create a map of Oklahoma (from scratch) and perform a table join and simple analysis.  The goal of this half-day workshop is to take those who are ArcGIS proficient and ease into using ArcPro.  Maybe we can join the ranks of those who really like using ArcPro.

Eric Pimpler, GeoSpatial Training Services

Course Description:

Google Earth Pro is an excellent tool for creating and distributing geographic data visualizations.  In this course you will learn how to use Google Earth to attach vital information to your features including photos, videos, links to PDF files and website, text, and more.  You will also learn how to create thematic maps, 3D maps, geocode addresses, create elevation profiles and viewsheds, add your own imagery, use historical imagery of various locations, and much more!
