Preconference 
Geodatabase Essentials
Date: Monday, 5 May
Time: 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Cost: R1,500/$150
Level: Intermediate
Presented by: TBD

Overview

This workshop teaches the essential concepts and skills needed to efficiently create a geodatabase, add data to it (converting from different formats), and realistically model the real-world spatial relationships inherent to your data.

You will learn about unique geodatabase features that help ensure data integrity over time and why the geodatabase is the preferred format for storing and managing geographic data. Learn about the multiuser geodatabase architecture and installation options and how to configure the geodatabase for efficient data storage and delivery of data access and editing capabilities to many users.

A successful multiuser editing environment requires a sound versioning workflow that minimizes disruption to editors, ensures the integrity of GIS data, and integrates well with existing business workflows, all while maintaining optimal database performance.

Prerequisites: Working knowledge of ArcMap and geodatabases
Audience: GIS technicians/professionals, data managers, and other professionals who are or are being made responsible within their organizations for managing spatial data

 

Preconference 
Analysis with ArcGIS
Date: Monday, 5 May
Time: 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Cost: R1,500/$150
Level: Intermediate
Presented by: TBD

Overview

Every analysis begins with a question and has criteria that must be considered. You will learn how the analysis question and criteria drive decisions about what data and tools will generate reliable information. Working with a variety of data and ArcGIS tools, you will perform different types of analyses to efficiently solve spatial problems. This workshop is taught using ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced, and some exercises use tools provided in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, and Network Analyst extensions.

Prerequisites: Working knowledge of ArcMap and geodatabases
Audience: GIS analysts/professionals

 

Working with Imagery in ArcGIS
Date: Wednesday, 7 May
Time: 9:00 a.m.–noon
Cost: None
Level: Beginner
Presented by: TBD

Overview

This workshop offers a complete and integrated solution for managing, serving, and consuming image data. Learn how to work with mosaic datasets, which allow you to store, manage, view, and query most raster and image data types.

The A–Z of ArcGIS Online
Date: Thursday, 8 May
Time: 9 a.m.–noon
Cost: None
Level: Beginner
Presented by: TBD

Overview

The objective of the workshop is to take the user from (A) starting with an Excel spreadsheet to designing a geodatabase with domains and attachments, publishing map services, creating a web map and utilizing the mobile Collector for ArcGIS application to update features, but then also configuring the Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS to visualize the information (Z).

If you are interested in understanding all the steps involved in going from Excel to publishing maps in Operations Dashboard, this workshop is for you.

Prerequisites: Working knowledge of ArcMap
Audience: GIS technicians/professionals, data managers, and other professionals who are or are being made responsible within their organizations for disseminating spatial information
