Tech Workshops

Insights for ArcGIS with Ocean Data (half-day, 9:00am–12:00pm)

Insights for ArcGIS allows you to quickly find answers in your data, and to discover the secrets your data holds using exploratory analysis. Working with maps, charts, and tables, participants will integrate and analyze spatial and tabular data from enterprise databases, ArcGIS data, geodatabases, Excel spreadsheets, and Living Atlas content data all in one view. Examples will include advanced spatial analysis with a simple drag and drop. Learn how ArcGIS intelligently records analysis workflow so you and others can run it again to solve other problems. Bring your own device, or just sit in to learn about Insights for ArcGIS.

Field Data Capture with Survey123 (half-day, 1:00pm–4:00pm)

In this hands-on technical session, you will be introduced to Survey123 for ArcGIS, a simple, yet powerful solution that enables data collection workflows through mobile devices and the web. Survey123 takes a form centric approach to data capture with ArcGIS, providing an extremely intuitive experience for field crews and contributors. Survey123 also features flexible options for the configuration of user-input data validation rules, form layout and form logic, which is critical to reduce data errors and to facilitate the analysis. Survey123 can be used in coastal inspections, marine debris surveys, shoreline environmental assessments, citizen science and crowdsourcing initiatives and more. Bring your own device, or just sit in to learn about Insights for ArcGIS.

Web AppBuilder and Configurable Apps (half-day, 1:00pm–4:00pm)

Learn how to create and publish Web Apps quickly, and with no coding required. Configurable apps are the fastest and easiest way to go from a map to a shareable app. We will show several of the configurable apps to choose from, and how to determine your audience’s needs, what you need the app to do, and how you need it to look. Each configurable app offers different options, such as layouts and colors schemes, editing and identify tool choices, social media sharing, and other storytelling capabilities. Limit 18 registrants.

Multispectral Bathymetry and Backscatter Processing Made Easy (half-day, 9:00am–12:00pm)

QPS is a market leader of hydrographic/marine software solutions and an ESRI Silver Partner, who provides a suite of applications to acquire, process, visualize, and share data. QPS’s Qimera intelligently and interactively guides the user through bathymetric data processing to simplify the production of clean, gridded surfaces, while QPS Fledermaus serves as a space for the creation and analysis of rich 4-dimensional scenes, and acts as a conduit directly to ArcGIS. In this hands-on workshop, designed for the non-hydrographer, participants will use Qimera and Fledermaus Geocoder Toolbox to learn how to process multibeam bathy and backscatter data, with a special focus on processing multispectral datasets. Participants will also be given an introduction on how to use Fledermaus to analyze multispectral data, digitize areas of interest in a 3D environment, and generate ArcGIS shapefiles with symbology. Machines provided. Limit 18 registrants.

ArcGIS Pro Basics for Science (half-day, 9:00am–12:00pm)

Designed for existing ArcMap users, participants in this hands-on workshop will learn basic operational, analytical, and workflow features of ArcGIS Pro. This morning workshop is intended as preface for the afternoon Ecological Marine Units OR Atmospheric Tools Workshops. Familiarity with ArcGIS geoprocessing tools is recommended. Machines provided. Limit 40 registrants

Advanced Analytical Workflows for Ocean Science (half-day, 1:00pm–4:00pm)

In this workshop, participants will use ArcGIS Pro to learn advanced analytical workflows. We will share ArcGIS Pro Tasks to localize the Ecological Marine Units, and we will work with Space-Time Cubes and other multi-dimensional data and Geoprocessing tools. Join us to discover the latest in scientific applications for Ocean GIS. Familiarity with ArcGIS geoprocessing tools is recommended. Machines provided. Limit 40 registrants.
