Workshop [4 hours]

GIS Workflow at the Heart of NG9-1-1 (Continued)

This NG9-1-1 Workshop shows how GIS is at the heart of NG9-1-1 and is aimed at the GIS professional who is currently supporting or may soon support their emergency communications division in the future or the PSAP stakeholder interested in learning more about the data needed to support the ESInet.  Deadlines are looming for the GIS Professional to have their data and workflows in place by 2020 to support NG9-1-1.

From hours to seconds: Multi-dimensional indexing with GeoWave and HBase (Continued)

Participants in this workshop will learn how to use GeoWave’s multidimensional indexing capabilities to preserve spatial and spatial-temporal locality in a distributed key value store. Each participant will set up a test cluster on his or her own machine using the GeoWave RPMs and Docker. We will then use the GeoWave command line functionality to ingest and analyze both vector and raster data. The participants will also use our GeoWave Geoserver plugins to render their data.

Intermediate

Extending QGIS (Continued)

Any GIS becomes more useful when you can connect it to other programs and data services. In this workshop, you will learn how to connect QGIS to spatial databases, work with data from data services, use QGIS in conjunction with programming languages like R and Python, use plugins, and work with algorithms and processing tools from other GIS programs from the Processing Toolbox. We’ll also specifically address how to get help and resources for learning on your own.

Drone Technology and Data Analysis (Continued)

Drones are now becoming mature technology for data collection in agriculture, natural resources management, mining, facilities management, emergency response, and other fields. Working with drone data, however, is a non-trivial affair because it requires a special suite of knowledge and skills related to remote sensing, photogrammetry, spatial data management, spatial analysis, mapping, specialized equipment, and regulatory considerations.
Experience level: 
Beginner

Introduction to GeoServer (continued)

GeoServer is an open source server that allows users to share and publish spatial data over the web. In this tutorial, attendees will learn how to load, publish, style, and share spatial data with GeoServer. Discussion will include navigating the GeoServer user interface, loading and publishing data, OGC web services, and styling. This is a popular workshop geared toward those with no prior GeoServer experience. Familiarity with basic GIS concepts is suggested.
