Getting Started with ArcGIS for Desktop

This workshop will teach participants how to create maps using ArcGIS for Desktop, a powerful mapping and analysis tool available in several labs on campus. Users will learn to navigate around the mapping application (ArcMap), map an area and add data to it. ArcGIS for Desktop offers many options for exporting images suitable for use as posters or in publications. Sponsored by the IT Client Support & Services Department and the Library.

October UD-GIS Coffee Hour meeting

UD-GIS Coffee Hour meeting is on October 11, 2016 10-11:30am, 304 Pearson Hall (Studio C). Come to the meeting where we talk about – GIS! It’s a great way to collaborate and meet other GIS users on campus. Naomi Bates (DGS) will deliver a presentation on LiDAR data (details below).

Coffee, donuts and bagels will be provided.

Topic: Delaware LiDAR Data, Derivatives, and Applications
Description: Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is an active remote sensing technique using pules of light to measure distance to a surface. In early 2014, topographic LiDAR was collected for the entire state of Delaware, and from these data, a seamless, statewide 1-meter, hydro-flattened, bare earth digital elevation model (DEM) was produced. This presentation will include an introduction to LiDAR data and include examples of point cloud data, DEM analysis, and discussion of LiDAR derived data products and applications.

Agenda:
– Technical presentation (Naomi Bates)
– GIS Day at the University of Delaware (Nov 16)
– Esri e-Learning (new and improved access)
– Esri product licensing at UD
– Upcoming GIS workshops on campus
– Round table discussion
