University of Washington Libraries

Registration is now open for some great workshops that will be held
right before the Intermountain GIS Conference! There is something for
everyone -- GIS and non-GIS folks. There are some great workshops
related LiDAR, GPS, NHD, ArcGIS 9.2, Program Management, etc. -- see
the descriptions below.

Pick one that's right for you and sign up today! Also, please pass
this along to anyone that you think might be interested.

Workshop registration site: http://www.intermountaingis.org/

(Workshop 1a & 1b)
National Hydrography Dataset Applications Workshop
Description:
This class provides all of the basic information you need to exploit
the power of the National Hydrography Dataset. The NHD was carefully
designed for scientific applications and consists of many attributes
and characteristics perfectly suited for geographic analysis using
GIS. However, the data was designed to be simple enough for anyone to
use, not just highly skilled GIS specialists. Thanks to this design,
powerful applications can be developed with just one day~Rs training.
The class starts by looking at how others around the country are
using the NHD. The NHD data structure is explored and applied to
basic mapping techniques. The ability to navigate throughout the
stream network is covered, opening up new approaches for conducting
GIS. The data structure is explored in more detail revealing many new
possibilities for network analysis. The important process of linking
scientific data to the stream network is covered. These techniques,
combined with network navigation, lead to cause and effect analysis
allowing the scientist to discover how one event in the environment can impact another event. The importance of data change management,
the added power of NHDPlus, and the role of ArcHydro are also
covered.

GeoDatabase and GeoProcessing with ModelBuilder (v9.2)
Description:
In this two-day course, students will be introduced to the ArcGIS
Version 9.2 GeoDatabase environments. Users will be provided training
data, but may also bring their own data to the course. A new
GeoDatabase is created from scratch. Participants learn how to
create, use, edit and manage spatial and attribute data stored in the
GeoDatabase and how to share GeoDatabase schema with XML. Data
loading, topology rule creation, editing, and maintaining data
integrity through spatial and attribute validation will be thoroughly
explored. The ModelBuilder will be introduced early on as a tool for
data loading and maintenance. After a GeoDatabase is built, students
will use ModelBuilder for a number of different analyses. The 9.2
additions to ModelBuilder will be explored as well. For quick
learners, this course should have time for using concepts introduced
in the class on your own data.
