REGISTER February 9, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:45pm Leader/Instructor Jeff Blossom NON-HARVARD REGISTER Brief introduction to GIS, and the CGA workshop training series, to help students determine workshops that are appropriate for their individual needs. Students will use online and desktop GIS software.
Geoprocessing tasks can be time intensive since they often performed on a number of different and large datasets. This hand-on workshop will gently introduce Model Builder in ArcGIS Desktop, and show how you can use them to increase productivity and the quality of your data.
Taught by Giovanni Zambotti

Dataverse is a software application that enables institutions to host research data repositories. It provides a preservation and archival infrastructure, while researchers can share, keep control of and get recognition for their data through an easy to access web browser interface. Dataverse supports the sharing of research data with a persistent data citation, and data publishing and management workflows with versioning and metadata standards.
This session will briefly review the new features in Dataverse 4.0, and proceed to hands-on instruction for personalizing your dataverse and dataset.... Read more about Dataverse Training

Instructor: Paul Cote
It is now common for municipalities to collect data about the heights and three-dimensional shape of buildings. These data, along with terrain models and two-dimensional groundplan information makes it possible to use GIS to create useful three-dimensional models of large areas. These models may be used to visualize design scenarios, as a contextual framework for sensor networks and many other applications. Participants in this workshop will learn to render GIS data in 3D and to perform studies of visual... Read more about Three-Dimensional GIS
REGISTER March 23, 2018 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm Leader/Instructor Jeff Blossom NON-HARVARD REGISTER The ability to 'wrangle' various forms of data into a GIS is necessary in order to produce maps or analysis. Students will learn how to convert and properly geo-reference raw data in text form into GIS format, find and import relevant publicly available data, and produce a map of the results.
