Article source: http://gis.washcoll.edu/

Washington College provides self-paced virtual instruction for the working professional who wants to develop or expand their knowledge of ArcGIS Desktop, ENVI EX, and Trimble GPS. You may start a workshop at any time.

These workshops were developed with funding through the Maryland Higher Education Commission, and the Governor’s Office for Crime Control & Prevention.

All workshops are available to anyone with an interest in Geospatial Technology at a cost of $800 per workshop. There is a 10% discount when you register for 2 or more workshops. Group rate discounts are available for organizations.

GT 101: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Basics

This workshop covers the basics of GIS for the novice by exploring Google Earth and ArcGIS Desktop. You will learn the ArcMap and ArcCatalog interfaces as well as how to classify a map and make a professional map layout.


GT 102: Introduction to ArcGIS Spatial and Information Analysis Tools

Geoprocessing tools, projections, and other spatial query tools will be examined along with information fundamentals such as querying, joining, and relating to allow you to create and modify tabular data.


GT 201: Managing Spatial Data in ArcGIS

After learning more about geodatabases, this workshop will cover more complex spatial processing tools such as digitizing, georeferencing, spatial adjustment, and raster data manipulation.


GT 202: Data Management in ArcGIS

In addition to discovering the fundamentals of geocoding, students will learn advanced data manipulation skills including annotation and labeling, hyperlinking, and other advanced attribute tricks.


GT 301: ArcGIS Spatial Analysis

The ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension is the focus of this workshop. Students will learn the basics on how to deal with DEM’s and create slopes and contours. More advanced analysis on density mapping, site suitability analysis and least cost path modeling are also taught.


GT 302: ArcGIS 3D Analysis

Using the ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension, the student will learn how to create 3D community visualizations, construct terrain modeling, and build a 3D model of a building. All of this will culminate in learning how to produce animated movies of the 3D environment.


GT 401: Remote Sensing with ENVI EX

The field of remote sensing is introduced focusing on basic multispectral analysis and step-by-step image analysis exercises. Exercises include image classification, rule based feature extraction, and image difference change detection.


GT 402: Trimble GPS and Processing

This workshop focuses on obtaining useful & accurate data with Trimble GeoXt/XH GPS units, Pathfinder Office, and Terrasync. Skills covered include the basics of accurate GPS data collection, the application of real-time & post processed differential correction techniques, & creation of custom data dictionaries.

Creating trail map with ShareMap

ShareMap is a online map creation GIS tool  to create maps that can be later presented in various formats – as SVG vector graphic, bitmap raster or as interactive web map. The maps are free and licensed with Creative Commons license – it can be used on commercial and non commercial sites. You can use Sharemap to create map for Wikipedia or Wikipedia Commons. It is still in beta phase.

Here are some tutorials by ShareMap.Org:


Creating trail map with ShareMap

In this video you will learn how to create trail map using ShareMap – after creation trail map will be available as both interactive map and static map that can be used in printed leaflets.

The resulting map is available at http://sharemap.org/public/Tanbark%20Trail and the source map is located at http://www.hikinginbigsur.com/tanbarkmap.html .
