Event Description

Full Description:
This workshop introduces participants to Global Positioning System (GPS) data collection techniques commonly used to map point, line, and polygon features in the field. Participants will be shown how to use their phones or GPS devices to take down coordinates and then process that information into tables and maps for use in publications, reports and further analysis. Common traps and pitfalls for new users will be discussed, and solutions offered to these problems. The goal behind this workshop is to introduce participants to basic GIS skills, collecting GPS coordinates in the field, plotting tables of coordinates, approach to attributes, and putting the collected data into a computer software system to create a quick and easy map. The idea is to get participants to think spatially about how data is collected and can be translated back into a computer system.
