Database Design for GPS/GIS Applications

1:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Northwest Building
REGISTER October 6, 2017 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm NON-HARVARD REGISTER Leader/Instructor: Nicole Alexander Database design is a key step in GIS data modeling. GIS data modeling is the process of representing specific aspects of the real world in a computer. This workshop gives an introduction to GIS data modeling and the 3 phases of database design: requirements analysis, schema refinement, and physical database design. It also covers specific design considerations when capturing data for GIS applications using GPS. Students will design a Geodatabase for use in ArcPad on the Trimble GeoXT. Location...

Getting to know ArcGIS Network Analyst

1:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Northwest Building
REGISTER April 6, 2018 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm Leader/Instructor Fei Carnes NON-HARVARD REGISTER This workshop teaches how to use network data and ArcGIS Network Analyst software. We will explore street dataset to generate a network dataset and then use it to find optimal facility locations based on your criteria. We will develop an OD cost matrix to finds and measures the least-cost paths along the network from multiple origins to multiple destinations. Finally we will explore the location-allocation functionality to maximize health-care facilities attendance. Download Workshop Material Location...

Three-Dimensional GIS

1:30pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Northwest Building - 52 Oxford
REGISTER November 10, 2016 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm NON-HARVARD REGISTER 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
