Purpose: Provide an educational benefit to members of NWGIS. Provide three one-day workshops in a classroom setting on Esri’s ArcGIS online WebAppBuilder in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
Trainer: The trainer will be Eric Pimpler of GeoSpatial Training Services (the link is external).
Format: Classroom style training with each student bringing their own laptop. Handouts will be provided.
Workshop Support: Attendees are responsible for their own parking and lodging before and/or after the training. Information about parking and the training room will be sent to registered attendees. A lunch will be provided as part of this workshop. Each workshop will be limited to 24 participants. A waiting list will be maintained.
Registration: Registration is online using the NWGIS web site. The fee is $60 per student. The Northwest GIS User Group is subsidizing the three workshops up to $2,000. Cancellations will be permitted up to two weeks prior to the training. Less than two weeks prior to the first class, refunds will not be offered, but substitutions will be possible at any time. Registered students whose plans change can contact individuals on the waiting list to facilitate substitutions.

Friday, July 29th, Geospatial Training Services we'll be presenting a free webinar entitled Introduction to Spatial Statistics Toolbox for ArcGIS Desktop. In this webinar we'll give you a high level overview of the available tools, when to use the tools, and demonstrate some of the more popular tools such as Hot Spot Analysis, Cluster and Outlier Analysis, and others.
Space is limited so sign up soon to reserve your space. Sign up at: https://itrain.leadpages.co/introduction-spatial-statistics/
There's a GIS MOOC cycle available free of charge.
This cycle is made up of three different Modules:
Module 1: "Introduction to GIS"
Module 2: "Layer Editing"
Module 3: "Raster Analysis"
It will lead participants to how to use and exploit the potentiality of the open source software gvSIG while performing the most common GIS activities. This Course is both addressed to beginners and skilled GIS users who want to learn how to use this software.
The Course is open in continuous form and each module requires a participants engagement of around thirty hours.
Participants can thus plan individually the time to allocate to the course and complete all the scheduled activities without interfering with their daily work.
This Course is completely free of charge except for those participants asking for the corresponding credits of the gvSIG user certification program from the gvSIG Association, that is submitted to the payment of 40 Euro for each module or 100 Euro for the whole cycle. It will be earmarked for the sustainability of the project.
For further information about topics, goals…:
For registration, you have to press "Enroll" at the corresponding Module, and then accept the "Site policy agreement". Finally you will have to register at the web page, or login if you were registered already.
New GIS Course NOW available
A new GIS course entitled Sharing Conservation Knowledge is now available on ConservationTraining. This is the last course of a six course series designed to teach you the fundamentals of GIS. This course focuses on how you ask questions of your spatial data and how to present your results.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
The demonstrations and simulations in this course were created using Esri's ArcGIS 9.3 software; however, on August 20, 2014 a LIVE GIS Seminar Event will be held to show the functionality taught in this course in Esri's ArcGIS 10.1 software. You MUST register for the LIVE GIS Seminar Event, and you can do so on the Sharing Conservation Knowledge course room page.

LIVE GIS Seminar Event #5: Understanding GIS Databases
As you know, a new GIS curriculum is taking shape on ConservationTraining; six new courses ranging in topic from the five functions of a GIS to managing your spatial data to creating a map product.
One new learning component has been created for each of these new courses, the live seminar event. We are really excited about the LIVE events. The live seminar events will be held via WebEx technology and presented by several of the course authors.
Understanding GIS Databases was released about a month ago. The live seminar event for this course will be held next week on Tuesday October 15, 2013 at Noon Eastern Time. This live seminar event will be open to the ConservationTraining community and will consist of demonstrations highlighting functionality discussed within the associated course.
The live seminar event will be recorded and posted to the Understanding GIS Databases course room.
