Preconference Workshops

Image Management
Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price: 1,600 South African Rand
Room: TBD

Over time, your organization has likely obtained or created large collections of imagery in the form of orthoimage tiles, satellite and 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 and served to multiple devices. Utilizing collections of typical imagery datasets, the workshop will provide interactive examples and discussions on workflow best practices to quickly turn your imagery assets into accessible information for decision makers.

Data Management
Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price: 1,600 South African Rand
Room: 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. Attendees will learn about the 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 up to large workgroup and enterprise geodatabases stored in relational database management systems (RDBMS) and accessed by many users.

Attendees will see 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.

Presenter: TBD

 

ArcGIS Online for Organizations
Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price:1,600 South African Rand
Room: TBD

With ArcGIS Online, organizations of all sizes can manage their geospatial content and publish their maps, applications, data, and hosted services online. This workshop is intended to provide key information and insights to enable your success and takes a ground-up, best practices approach in how to add data; use existing content; and author, use, and share maps and apps.

The workshop will also provide an introduction to web application templates. Learn how to author great maps and scenes, create apps and shareable information, and leverage your ArcGIS organizational account to support desktop and mobile workflows.

Managing Successful Geospatial Development Projects
Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price:  1,600 South African Rand
Room:   TBD

What makes managing a geospatial development project different? Although managing any type of IT project can be challenging, projects involving geographic information (GI) present particular issues and problems because of the nature of the data, the processes and technology involved, and the expectations of the users.

This workshop covers the essentials of managing such projects, whether for the delivery of a dedicated geographic information system, for web-based map services, or as part of an integrated and enterprise-wide development.

Preconference Training Sessions

Geodatabase Essentials

Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price: 1,600 South African Rand
Room: TBD

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

Presenter: TBD

 

Analysis with ArcGIS
Date: Tuesday, 10 November
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Price: 1,600 South African Rand
Room: TBD

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.
