Full Day Training & Workshops

Description:
This Introduction to Python Programming class is geared towards GIS users who have never programmed anything in their lives.  It will go over the basic fundamentals of programming with Python and finish up with laying the foundation of using Python within the ArcGIS framework.  Topics will include “What is Python?”, “How do I Python?”, and “What about Object Oriented Programming?”.  There will also be an exhibition of using Python within the ArcGIS Desktop environment as well as stand alone scripting.  This is meant to slowly introduce you to the core concepts of Python while fanning the flames of your desire to learn more.  This is a hands-on class and lunch will be provided.  You will need to bring a laptop with ArcGIS v10.2 or newer installed.

Instructor: Ben Sloboda

Description:
Interested in a little ETL?  Many brew beer but how many have brewed a beer database?  Seven years of Great American Beer Festival beer and breweries information turned into a GIS work in progress (so many new delicious brews!).Join us in Grand Junction at the next GIS Colorado meeting to play with seven years of Great American Beer Festival (GABF) beer and breweries information in a SQL environment.

We will jump right into design, creating tables, doing some joins/relates, data extraction and querying best practices using some cool stats from GABF participating breweries and their beers.  Prior experience with SQL useful but not required.  This is a hands-on class and lunch will be provided.  You will need to bring a laptop with Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express installed.

Half Day Training & Workshops
Description:
This half day workshop is ideal for anyone who needs to do form based field survey work and is looking for an easier way. Survey123 for ArcGIS is an ESRI tool that allows you to create and deploy advanced geospatial surveys easily within your existing ArcGIS framework. You will learn how to create complex surveys with the user-friendly tools and how to deploy them to be used for field data collection by yourself and others. We’ll take a short ‘brew tour’ to practice collecting data and finally show you how it all comes together in ArcGIS Online.
Put on your lab coats, you’ll be acting as inspectors for Allpoints’ Training and Tap House. Each inspector group will complete a live survey123 inspecting various stages of the ArcGIS craft beer brewing process (lab). This fun demo is a great way to demonstrate the ease and effectiveness of Survey123 applied to nearly any inspection or observation process.

Description:
This half day workshop is for anyone who is curious about the capabilities of 3D lidar data but doesn’t know where to start. If you’ve heard about the new statewide lidar freely available in Colorado and you’d like to take advantage of it, this is for you! You’ll learn everything you need to know to get off the ground with lidar in ArcGIS. We’ll show you where to download free lidar data from different organizations. You’ll learn how to manage, visualize and analyze lidar data in ArcGIS. We’ll show you how you can add lidar to your ArcGIS workflows. We’ll also show you some cool new workflows and capabilities that will take your work to the next dimension.
