Concurrent Training Workshops
  • Gateway track: High Performance Raster Processing on the CyberGIS Gateway - UIUC
    This workshop introduces the CyberGIS Gateway, which makes the performance of a supercomputer accessible with the user friendliness of a web application. Focusing especially on the raster-processing workflows enabled by Gateway applications, participants will receive hands-on training with elevation and hydrology tools that operate on a copy of the complete National Elevation Dataset.
  • Analysis track: Performing Analysis with ArcGIS Online - Esri
    This workshop introduces the spatial analysis capabilities included with ArcGIS Online. These ready-to-use spatial analysis tools are hosted in the cloud by Esri, and are designed to provide an intuitive, user-friendly experience. We will highlight the overall features and capabilities of ArcGIS Online Analysis, demonstrate different analysis workflows using ArcGIS Online, and provide about a dozen self-paced exercises for you to choose from including retail, crime, demographic, health, natural resources, and other applications.
    For this workshop, participants will need an ArcGIS Online account with privileges to create content, publish hosted features, and use Spatial Analysis, GeoEnrichment, and Network Analysis. If you do not have an account with these privileges, please sign up for a free 60 day trial.

Concurrent Training Workshops
  • Gateway track: Esri Story Map Apps: A New Medium for Geography-Based Storytelling - Esri
    This workshop will introduce Esri’s Story Maps, a suite of open-source web apps that feature interactive maps and multimedia content within simple, intuitive storytelling user experiences. The apps include builder functions that enable non-technical users to create and publish their own stories. A hands-on session will train participants on how to compile a story map.
  • Analysis track: Digital Terrain Analysis for Large, High-Resolution Landscapes - UIUC
    This workshop gives a brief overview of the theory of terrain analysis and introduces scalable capabilities to perform morphometric analysis on natural landscapes. The workshop focuses on cases where the input elevation data is detailed (e.g., LIDAR data) and the analysis is extended over a large area, which makes it impractical to perform on a desktop PC. Methods discussed are also applicable to other grid-based operations.
Register to attend a training workshop (free)

Attendees are asked to bring their own laptop or work in pairs to complete the hands-on portion of the workshops.
