This workshop serves as follow-on to the Introductory and Geoprocessing Skills workshops. Some level of familiarity with ArcGIS is assumed. In this exercise you will use the goal of producing a publication quality map of sugar plantations in Madagascar as the vehicle for introducing some of the more advanced skills necessary to have when working on extensive GIS projects. Topics include:
The Raster Data Model provides an effective means of characterizing spatially continuous phenomena, such as elevation, temperature, precipitation and other environmental and climatic characteristics. This workshop provides a targeted introduction to the tools available in ArcGIS for creating, managing and analyzing data in raster form. Topics include:
https://github.com/OpenGeoTutorials is a repository maintained by the Stanford Geospatial Center. It currently contains a growing number of tutorials written by SGC staff and others, shared under Open Licensing. We will be forking many more of our Github-based materials to this repository over the next few days, including the materials for our new 101s series for ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online, and QGIS.
https://learn.arcgis.com/en/ is Esri’s main tutorial and lessons distribution site for all software platforms, including ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online and more. You will find a Gallery with the ability to facet by software platform, applications area, and more. There are also Tracks which combine a series of tutorials to create a complete introduction to a particular application area.
Below I have selected a few tracks that may be of interest to users of the ArcGIS platform for research and teaching.
A beginner's guide to ArcGIS Online
Use your smartphone or tablet to collect and update information in the field, whether connected or disconnected.
Arm yourself with hands-on skills and knowledge of how GIS tools can analyze health data and better understand diseases.
Learn path for your students to become familiar with ArcGIS Pro
Part of a series of paths created for business analytics, this 'Path' represents a fairly comprehensive overview of the various tools for collecting data using the Esri/ArcGIS ecosystem.
The labor of love of Ujaval Gandhi [@spatialthoughts], a Googler in India. Comprehensive and newly updated for QGIS 3.x, these are the best task-based tutorials for QGIS, out there. Available in more than a dozen translations.
Data Carpentry trains researchers in the core data skills for efficient, shareable, and reproducible research practices. We run accessible, inclusive training workshops; teach openly available, high-quality, domain-tailored lessons; and foster an active, inclusive, diverse instructor community that promotes and models reproducible research as a community norm.
Lesson materials are all available online, under a CC BY license, for self-directed study or for adaptation and re-use (as "Carpentries-based" training).
Data Carpentry workshops are domain-specific, so that we are teaching researchers the skills most relevant to their domain and using examples from their type of work.
This workshop is co-developed with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). It focuses on working with geospatial data - managing and understanding spatial data formats, understanding coordinate reference systems, and working with raster and vector data in R for analysis and visualization.
