Preconference Seminars

Image Management 
Date: Monday, May 5
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $150 USD/1,500 ZAR
Level: Beginner
Presented by: TBD

Over time, your organization has likely accumulated or created large collections of imagery in the form of orthoimage tiles, satellite imagery, aerial imagery, scanned maps, historical photos, and categorical data, as well as elevation rasters and lidar. This information has value only if it is accessible to a wide range of users within your organization who need quick access to measure change, identify assets, and perform analysis.

This workshop will provide details on how to use the extensive capabilities of ArcGIS to structure and manage this imagery so as to transform it into multiple imagery products that can be directly used in different applications, as well as served to multiple devices. Utilizing collections of typical imagery datasets, the seminar will provide interactive examples and discussions on best practice workflows to quickly turn your imagery assets into accessible information for decision makers.

Prerequisites: Attendees should have knowledge of working with raster datasets within ArcGIS as well as some initial exposure to using mosaic datasets to work with larger collections.

Audience: GIS and imagery analysts and other professionals who are or are being made responsible within their organizations for managing and disseminating imagery.

 

Data Management
Date: Monday, May 5
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $150 USD/1,500 ZAR
Level: Beginner
Presented by: TBD

Geographic data is the foundation of any GIS. The Data Management workshop focuses on ArcGIS technology as a platform for managing and using geographic data. Delegates will learn more about data sources and types (such as features, rasters, networks, terrains) supported by ArcGIS and how they are represented, accessed, stored, and processed.

Learn how to use ArcGIS to create and manage geodatabases that can scale from small, single-user geodatabases built on files to larger workgroup and enterprise geodatabases stored in relational database management systems (RDBMS) and accessed by many users.

Delegates will learn how to use the ArcGIS editing infrastructure to set up and maintain a number of editing workflows that include simultaneous multiuser editing, distributed geodatabases, and historical archiving.

Prerequisites: Attendees should have knowledge of working with geodatabases.

Audience: GIS technicians/professionals, data managers, and other professionals who are or are being made responsible within their organizations for managing and disseminating spatial data.

 

ArcGIS Enterprise Systems
Date: Monday, May 5
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $150 USD/1,500 ZAR
Level: Intermediate
Presented by: TBD

This seminar will provide attendees with a strategy for successful ArcGIS system architecture design. The focus is on best practices and real-world examples of lessons learned, including guidelines for identifying business requirements, selecting the right software, using properly configured data sources, getting the product architecture right, selecting the right hardware, and defining solution strategies that satisfy user productivity needs.

Design theory is matched with practical experience shared by our top enterprise design architects demonstrating the value of implementing IT design standards.

Prerequisites: None

Audience: GIS managers, project managers, GIS technical architects, IT managers, and software developers

 

Making the Business Case for Investment in Geospatial Projects
Date: Monday, May 5
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $150 USD/1,500 ZAR
Level: Intermediate
Presented by: TBD

Spatial information projects are often dogged by the inability to gain the attention of the chief executive and establish a return on investment (ROI) that convinces the chief financial officer. In a tough economic climate, it is particularly important that any project that requires investment can show a very rapid return so as not to undermine already tight budgets.

The concept of "cashable" or realizable savings is key to building a robust case, as is providing comparable evidence of other organizations that have benefited from implementing similar solutions. However, in addition to solid analysis, the case must be shown to address the organization's most important challenges and be compellingly presented in terms that senior executives understand.

Prerequisites: None

Audience: GIS managers, business analysts, and project managers
